At peril from plastic
IN RESPONSE to M. Warren “Time to bag plastic idiocy” ( TB, 27/ 10).
Mr Warren, the rest of the world is well aware why supermarkets stopped plastic bags.
The oceans are full of microplastic pellets which we humans are now digesting, presumably in seafood we eat.
These pellets have been found in human stools in the past week confirming what we already knew, that plastic waste is a worldwide problem and, of course, the less plastic we use, the less plastic ends up in our oceans.
I have not found it a burden to take a few material bags to the supermarket with me to pack my groceries, like the majority of shoppers do.
I trust Mr Warren’s organisational skills allow him to join that majority. SHAUN NEWMAN,
