Margaret Atwood on Plastics

Dame Margaret wrote the Handmaiden’s Tale back in 1985. She wsa already well established as a novelist, poet and activist.

And she has something to say to you about a subject that you probably don’t think about very much – plastics.  We rely on plastics to an astounding degree. So much so that we dump 8 million tons of plastic into the oceans each year. Thta might be ok if plastic was inert. But it is not.

Dame Margaret has a suggestion and it is worth reading.
