For the last few years, I have been trying to go as plastic-free as possible. Plastic production, use, and breakdown produces an immense amount of toxins. Some of these toxins are even carcinogens. I find that terrifying. In my family, we are committed to limiting our plastics and fantasize about going plastic-free someday.
In the book, Plastics: A Love Story, by Susan Frenkel, it states that the US has “produced nearly as much plastic in the last ten years as we have in all previous decades put together”. The more plastic in our lives, means there are more and more toxins.
