Since there is a vast reduction of plastic bags and single use plastic items, do you ever think about the people in the plastic business? Were (are) they forward thinking and started to source new raw materials? Did they simply close the factory or looked for new customers in other countries? Fortunately, the doors for plastic are closing everywhere in the world.
I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing about all new sustainable innovations and ideas that are buzzing out there in the world.
We were fortunate to find sugarcane tubes from the start, so we never had to use plastic tubes for our organic skincare.
When I lived in Thailand many years ago, my neighbors were an American/Thai family. The husband, a freelancer working from home, was sourcing plastic straws for Starbucks. This is how he supported his family. I wonder what he is doing now….
