Age of Plastic

Welcome AWESome EarthKind People!

Today we going to shift focus from the fossil fuel ENERGY consumption that is responsible for about 90% of the climate crisis –

And look at the PRODUCTS that are also made with Fossil Fuels – namely, PLASTICS.

in the 1967 watershed movie. The Graduate, an older gentleman gives a young college student some advice:

“The Future is Plastics, Son”.

For the youth of the 1960s – and still today – “Plastic” meant fake, artificial, & unnatural. The statement “The future is plastics” was code for all the things that needed to be changed. The older man in the movie thought he was providing good advice to the student, but the young audience took that as a statement for what NOT to do.

Isn’t it ironic that 50 years later we don’t prefer plastic jewelry and other “fake” possessions – but we’re still living with plastics EVERYWHERE.

The most easily seen environmental issue on this planet is the continuous use of plastics. Virtually all plastics come from fossil fuels, and they end up in landfills, or in the oceans, and everywhere else for hundreds – or even thousands – of years…

We all have the power to choose what we bring inside our homes. And there’s are a lot of ways to recycle plastics into something more sustainable for both our lives and the planet’s.

Andrea Fox is the host of the Age of Plastic Podcast – an environmental podcast with tips on how to live plastic free.  Andrea tackles big ethical issues in the hope of overcoming the climate change overwhelm and the guilt from our use of single-use plastics.

Andrea believes that there are ways we can live life more sustainably. There are so many things we are able to do without even lifting a finger to be more sustainable and to live in a slightly more waste-free, plastic-free life.
