We just have to ban single-use plastics. We used to have systems to return and reuse the same bottles 100 times. That’s a 99% waste reduction, and the 1% was easily remade into a new bottle.

"Flame retardants do not work, they hurt firefighters, poison our families. Science shows us we should eliminate these , and yet vetoed the bill that did just that. He needs to get out of the way, or do the right thing."

If listening to , Rep , and Sen doesn’t get you angry about toxic flame retardants + what it does to firefighters, kids, and families - I don’t know what will. It’s past time to remove these toxics from furniture + kids products

Let’s pass legislation to do that, as well as banning any single-use coffee cup made with plastic. Works for bags!
