Everyone has the right to a life where they do not have to worry about the negative impacts of plastic on their health, the health of their children, and the planet. This is achievable if we are first able to reduce the amount of plastic waste produced. I envision a future where everyone makes an effort to decrease their plastic usage and where single-use plastic is rarely used and is frowned upon. As a significant portion of plastic waste is produced from food items, stores should lower the prices of items not packaged in plastic to encourage people to avoid packaged items. Additionally, bringing your own reusable containers to restaurants and stores should become the norm.
