Think green

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - FRONT -

We don’t all need to be ge­niuses like Boyan Slat to be part of the so­lu­tion to re­duce plas­tics (“Clean dream”, Oct 21-22). We just need to re­mem­ber to grab our green bags when we leave home to go shop­ping. Anna Hall Ken­more, Qld

It is ad­mirable to see what Boyan Slat is do­ing in clean­ing up the oceans, but it’s another Band-Aid. Con­sumers can help mend the plas­tic epi­demic by us­ing less, though it will take ma­jor govern­ment change to fix it. And, yes, it will cost. Nancy Tavener Ca­rina, Qld
