Lawmakers are disempowered by global corporate power. Corporations are not motivated - all the cost is shifted to the consumer - brainwashing.

To deb/ who is saying ingesting plastic is not a problem (unhealthy) - There is a lot of fuzz being put out publicly that it may not be unhealthy - it seems likely funded by Fossil Fuel denialists but it is being put out publicly <https://www.discovermagazine.com/health/microplastics-are-everywhere-but-their-health-effects-on-humans-are-still> <https://www.npr.org/2019/08/22/753324757/who-study-finds-no-evidence-of-health-concerns-from-microplastics-in-drinking-wa>

Jim I’m sorry we got cut off. Also I apologize to my group because I know I’m a big disappointment in my political activism. I chose to go with teaching through my teaching yoga and other ways of teaching . And change through example..eg: our crossfit group is recycling their old shoes. So it’s small , but that’s one way I feel I can have integrity regarding non-use of plastics.

That’s a great point and that has been a huge revelation ..that recycling is not going to save us.

DO I have to remove paper label from plastic container before it can be recycled? Iclandic yogurt had paper container and tab to separate label off container? Now they have stopped recycling glass in Texas

ScienceNews: A new technique could make some plastic trash compostable at home. Embedding enzymes in the material causes it to rapidly break down without creating microplastics! <https://www.sciencenews.org/article/plastic-compost-new-enzyme-technique-biodegradable?utm_source=NorCal+Chapter%3A+Elders+Climate+Action&utm_campaign=d3beef2258-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2020_04_04_05_33_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_cc21a6b5e3-d3beef2258-289194341>
