I envision a world where the only types of plastic that exist are reusable or biodegradeable, no single use plastics allowed. I value health and keeping the earth pollution free and I hope that moving towards safer, reusable plastics will help maintain these values. My intervention would be to ban all single use items. Grocery bages, water bottles, take-out containers, plastic on vegetables and food items etc. I know that people would easily be able to do this since many of us already have our own containers at home that we could use when we go shopping or get take out. I think that the government would need to provide a subsidy for people to help them purchase re-usable containers, and this subsidy should make it so that only glass (or other long lasting materials or reusable/biodegradable plastics) can be purchased.
