‘Tis the season of…

December 23, 2014


A few years ago, a friend sent me an image of a plastic spoon, with this caption:

“It’s pretty amazing that our society has reached a point where the effort necessary to 1) extract oil from the ground; 2) ship it to a refinery; 3) turn it into plastic; 4) shape it appropriately; 5) truck it to a store; 6) buy it; and 7) bring it home is considered to be less effort than what it takes to just… wash the spoon when you’re done with it.”

So have loads of fun this holiday season – but why not strive to use less disposable cutlery, plates, cups and napkins?
