Plastic Pollution

by duncanr

We are now producing nearly 300 million tons of plastic every year, half of which is for single use. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every yearsource

plastic in our oceans is harmful to the environment, marine life, and humans – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_pollution

a substitute packaging material made from edible seaweed could, therefore, be a significant step towards reducing plastic pollution

P.S., pity about the daft name ‘Ooho’

Fake Food Fools Thief

by duncanr

A hungry thief stole two breakfast sandwiches from a 7-11 store in south Nanaimo

Sadly for him, the sandwiches he grabbed were fake plastic ones for display purposes only

To be fair to the thief, though, it was an easy enough mistake to make – many of the pre-packed sandwiches sold now do indeed look and taste like plastic !
