One of my New Year’s Resolutions is what I’ve called my ‘Blue Planet Pledge.’ This resolution is not to use any more single use drinks containers.
In fact, I’ve done pretty well so far – only once accepting a disposable cup when I had said yes to an offered glass of water without realising it would be brought it in a paper cup. It seemed rude to refuse.
Despite this small action I am in little doubt that our household is single handedly destroying the planet. I cannot believe how much rubbish we throw into landfill or put into the recycling bins.
Where does it all come from? In fact, it terrifies me. If we are all doing this then how long will it be before the whole world turns into a rubbish tip? I look in despair at the litter on the roadsides, look at potential rubbish wrapping our food and watch on the Blue Planet the result.
So, it’s great to see Jamie Wylie launching ‘Plastic Free Perthshire’ on page 8. Let’s get on board straight away and see what initiatives and actions we can think of to make PFP a reality. Maybe, through working together, we can change this corner of the world for the better.
