I envision a future where we can get rid of single-use plastics. Things like plastic checkout bags, ring carriers, cutlery, and straws are all unnecessary when there are alternative options that are better for our environment.
I am glad to say I am seeing changes in our society. Almost every restaurant I go to gives me paper straws or biodegradable straws.
My home town has banned plastic bags in grocery stores. We need to take reusable bags with us to go shop. (Unfortunately, paper bags is becoming a bigger thing)
I am also starting to see wooden forks being given with fast food orders.
All-in-all, I'd say we are heading in the right direction. The government, as well as individuals, are starting to understand the damage single-use plastics have on our environment and we are slowly, but surely, taking action.
