As an avid Facebook user, I am finding the idea of having my own space where the abundance of exciting information regarding the welfare of our planet can be shared in one location, in a platform where a greater expanse of people will have the ability to find a place to begin making informed and intentional decisions regarding simple ways to change our behavior patterns.
I recently ran across this article from the Chicago Tribune from June, 2012. Recently a friend of mine posted a picture of a bottle made from PET plastic. Be sure it was quite a pleasant sign of positive change. Just another way American responsibility will lead the way toward a remedy for the massive damage fuel based plastics have placed on our planet. While I’m not exactly ecstatic about the potential for the plantations to be cutting into the Amazon, the idea that big business is investing in the research to increase the change in our consumption patterns by furthering study on PET plastics, made from plant sugars! Effective use would greatly shrink our dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, as this process is refined, maybe they will be able to find a way to use up all that High Fructose Corn Syrup that is placed in so many processed foods at an unhealthy level.
Have you seen PET plastics yet? If not, will you be looking for them in the future?
