There are a number of reasons. I want to see if I can. I want to know how difficult it is to live with less plastic. I want to see if there is a significant difference in the cost of living. I want to see if my health (mental and physical) changes.
But mainly, because I think that it is necessary. We are living in a "disposable society" and that has to change. It is pretty disgusting walking along the beach and seeing all the marine debris that comes up. And the majority of it is plastic. Plastic that doesn't break down. Not okay.
|Here is a beach where we did a marine debris analysis.|
|This is the transect - 2 meters wide.|
|This is the trash that we found on the "clean" beach (3 transects).|
