    Funny...was waiting till the end of this video to learn how to absolutely avoid plastic, but as the video ended I have not learned anything new (sigh). Checked the title and this was only about plastic bottles. Well businesses do not even recycle carbon paper so how to convince them to recycle plastic? Trying my best to avoid online shopping and plastic in general in my life, but there are things in plastic that are unavoidable. We have a long way to go. 100% agree on educating public. Not so many people know that clamshell plastic containers are not recyclable at all (at least in our state), so people shop till drop and dispose these in recycle bins even though it goes in landfills 😭 I just stopped buying items in these containers last week and it feels so GOODD!!!

    Quit buying single use plastics and they will disappear due to simple economics. A replacement will be found if the consumers would boycott.
