  1. A large portion of plastic production and usage not only comes from US, but also from developing countries. However, developing countries tend to reuse and recycle more (not by individuals but by landfill workers) due to already having facilities to recycle and more for economic reason than environmental reason. But not all of them are recycled, a large portion still ends up in the rivers and the ocean. The US seems to export more to other countries to do its recycle than doing it itself. When it can't export, these end up in landfill and eventually the ocean.

    It's hard to do but I've tried to switch up to other materials whenever possible, like glass, ceramic, metal, bamboo, wicker, cloth, etc. Some of them are a bit more expensive but I find them more durable and look good if I buy good ones. Of course there are stuff that are hard to replace, either for practicality or overpricing reason, so I'm still using plastic for those until I can find a reasonable replacement.

  3. You condemn Americans for not using masks and gloves like paranoid fiends. Now you condemn them for using them like you said they should. Accept responsibility for the fake news you created! I say get rid of ABC to help clean the environment.

  4. I try very hard to give up plastic. I get laundry soap in powder, dish soap either powder or pods, I use 3 gal reusable water containers and fill glass. I've changed to glass containers for food storage. Reusable tops for covers. My only problem is dairy containers and toothbrushes. I even make cloth bags to wrap presents and for the grocery store. But I'm open to more ideas.

  5. We could cut our plastic waste in half if we would go with uniform Packaging. Instead of every peanut butter brand ketchup brand or whatever food item or medical item brand having their own package design and plastic bottle design Force every company to have the same size and stop having 5 and 6 sizes of the same product. All we need is a small and large. And every brand of cola mayonnaise or whatever product it is use the same containers as the other company.
