Am happy to see our federal government move in the direction of banning some plastics.  Plastics have brought us so much good, yet clearly we do not need to use plastics for convenience sake alone (e.g., retail shopping bags, plastic dinnerware,  some take-out food containers, etc.).

What about fleece clothing?   Been a big fan of synthetic outdoor clothing for a long time and have recently learned I am depositing micro-plastics — everywhere.    Time to send the pile, fleece clothing and underwear to the landfill?   

Back to wool?  

Thoughts?   

I gotta tell you, replacing synthetic clothing for wet, cool west coast autumns and winters is going to be hard.

CNN reports that “Canada will ban many single-use plastic items by 2021, including bags, straws, cutlery and stirring sticks, to cut harmful waste damaging the country's ecosystems.”

The move comes as “the European Parliament passed a similar ban on single-use plastic items in late March, including a target to recycle 90% of plastic beverage bottles by 2029. In May, the United Kingdom followed suit with a plastic ban by 2020. Officials estimated 4.7 billion plastic straws and 316 million plastic stirrers are used in England every year.

“A report by the European Commission found that 80% of litter in the world's oceans is plastic, due to its slow decomposition. Plastic has been found inside marine animals including sea turtles, seals, whales and birds.”

In a prepared statement, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the plastic issue was “"a problem we simply can't ignore … Plastic waste ends up in our landfills and incinerators, litters our parks and beaches, and pollutes our rivers, lakes, and oceans, entangling and killing turtles, fish, and marine mammals.”

Trudeau said the Canada government “will work with companies that use or create plastic products to set targets on waste.”

It just so happens...

It's kind of sad, tho, when people come in wanting a resume printed or invitations, and they want to look at paper samples. I have to say, "We can't get nice paper anymore. You need to go to Walmart or envelopes.com. We'll do the printing and I'll do the designing, but you have to bring us the paper you want."

I work in the dead trees industry and even tho there aren't as many people making things out of slices of dead trees anymore, it was sort of a shock when we ordered $300 worth of dead trees only to be told that our account has been closed because we don't order enough dead trees anymore and anyway the minimum dead trees order is now $500 and they're not going to deliver it either.

That is, the only paper distributor within 500 miles just told a printer that they won't sell them paper.

Wade Davis: Life without wild things
We have forgotten the flocks of passenger pigeons that blotted out the sun, the herds of bison that shook the ground and the untamed places in which we destroyed them. This is ecological amnesia
