Plastic is really useful.
But that's just because we have got so used to plastic we can't think outside the box any more.
Even only about 40 years ago things weren't packaged in plastics. And our grandparents didn't use plastics. Things weren't packed for kids in plastic. There were no plastic bags. Anything we bought was packed in paper bags, or newspapers (in the case of meat or fish) Waxed paper, or Greaseproof paper was used a lot. Food was stored in dishes or on covered plates in the refrigerator. There were no 'TV' dinners or ready meals. People used to bring home their veggies in paper bags, or loose, in shopping baskets.
When I went to school (1950's-60's) I had a little leather bag which carried my lunch; an apple or pear, and sandwiches wrapped in greaseproof paper.
The thing is, with wrappings and plastics.....people generally don't want to go back to the old ways. They find the new ways more convenient and don't want to have to think outside the box. That's why change with such things is going to be very hard.
Yup I use some but I dont like it its sometimes laziness and brain fog on my part....I like glass and china but I would find it hard to do without some of the mod cons...hummm maybe I could get used to it, knowing everyone was healthier .
I really like this thread from Crotcheta as I am sure that going back to some of our old ways saves us money , my electirc bill has doubled the last 2 months , so I am cutting back on the appliances I keep plugged in, as apparently even just plugged into the power unit,goes through and we get charged for it,its amazing how many we keep plugged in, count them .....
