    Great article, Carolyn. Fits right into the philosophy of the 3Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. I fear and feel for our society, from plastic surgery to plastic cutlery. A disposable culture that is wasting our planet away. There is only one earth and they are not making them anymore so please conserve.
