‘Paper or plastic?’
We hear it all the time a grocery stores, but the resounding answer today is ‘plastic.’
In fact, it felt like a big day for plastic along the streets. At every turn there was another piece of plastic to be yanked from ground level; bottles, sheeting, wrappers, etc. I had to go to Plan B, i.e. since the bag was jam full, I’d let paper debris sit so as to save room for all manner of plastic.
But here’s what’s depressingly amazing: Yesterday was also a big day for plastic. So was Tuesday, and the Monday before that. Then there was the prior weekend.
I dunno. Maybe I’m just dreaming up this gi-normous amount of plastic. It sure as hell felt like a lot at the time.
