re: everyday plastic

<jessica in response to the plastics group’s questions:>

plastic interaction:

I inserted a Born Free BPA free plastic pacifier into my son’s mouth. This interaction lasted for about 15 minutes until he fell asleep. Sometimes said pacifier does not operate as advertised and is instead propelled across the room, in which case, interaction is extended for 45 minutes or more. Cycle repeats several times a day and at night. This could go on for years.

One aspect of life I can’t imagine without plastic? I suspect I can manage without the baby-related plastic conveniences (it will just cost more in time and money), but what I simply can’t imagine without plastic is eating. Even if we tried to cut back on the obvious plastics in our food consumption, the packaging extends to so much foodstuffs it would be truly challenging to get away from it.
