Eventually, it is obvious to me, we will start to see serious questioning of plastics.
At what point do we say that we need all of the petro-chemical products we can get to stuff into the tanks of our SUVs?
At what point do we face up to the health hazards of, for example, Super Absorbent Polymers next to our precious babies’ thinnest skin?
When will we realize the importance of using renewable resources to deal with predictably reoccurring necessities like babies’ elimination?
Well, not yet. But, I am glad to see the beginnings of questioning plastics as part of the (not quite yet) mainstream conversation on the role of petro-chemicals in our lives.
