Plastics up north

So while all the headlines these day’s talk about plastics and our oceans, this story tonight is on another chapter of that story. It’s also about a place near and dear to my heart, the great lakes. The article is entitled “The Great Lakes Contain as much Plastic as the Oceans” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger.

On the bright side, I’ve greatly reduced my use of what are known as single-use plastic, like straws and plastic bags. In fact, tonight my son got a mint oreo shake and used one of our reusable metal straws. Yea!
