I think it’s important to critically examine the plastics issue before getting on any soap boxes about banning it all completely. So let’s get it out of the way and have a little chat about plastic, accessibility, and eco activism!
I find the term ‘zero waste’ provocative, and not in a particularly good way. I’ve taken part in many a discussion around the phrase that devolved into semantics because the other person’s immediate response was “but it’s impossible to be zero waste!” and you know what? That’s true! And why is it true? Because we don’t live in a circular economy.
