Drastic Plastic: Your Mission Should You Choose to Accept It

Did you know? The equivalent of one garbage truck full of plastic enters every minute. Over recent decades, society has moved from reusable containers to one of single-use, disposable plastic products.

The overuse of plastic in the food industry is growing problem. Most plastic food wrappers are made to be used once, but designed to last forever, harming animals, the environment, and even our own health.

We’re calling on YOU to help us solve the problem of plastic food packaging in the New Year. 

The Challenge:

How do we get a commitment from supermarkets to reduce the plastic packaging they use?

We invite our members and followers to join us on a Mission to create and develop ideas to reduce the over packaging of food in grocery stores and supermarkets by creating a collective movement to change industry behavior. 

Use the app to learn more, vote on other people’s ideas, add your own, and see how well your ideas are doing.

    Safeway store bakeries are totally out of control on how they sell the baked goods in plastic containers. Won’t buy them and I know they look yummy but NO MORE.

    I have spoken to the veggie manager at Publix here in FL and was shocked that his excuse is that management wants to sell more, so they package FOUR zucchinis together in a stryrofoam tray and wrap in plastic. I make him unwrap them so I can buy only two (there are only 2 of us in this house– as is the case with MANY retired households here!). But he still uses the wrapping. It’s obscene.

    Need to make the program available on ALL smart phones and desk tops. My suggestion for decreasing plastic use is to go back to produce items loose on display and provide small brown bags to fill items as performed years ago. For plastic containers, use cardboard/pressed paper. For soda and plastic bottles, use wax covered containers like those used for milk/dairy products. As an incentive to dispose of plastic bags in the plastic recycle containers at grocery stores, for so many ounces deposited, money is returned like done with glass bottle machines.

    I would really love to see this stuff go away. It’s totally unnecessary and a waste energy. A little conservation could go a long way in solving this major problem in the environment. I want to be part of the solution. We are destroying the planet with plastic. It’s sickening.

    Every step we take as individuals helps. Whether it be by not using single use plastic items through to helping keep the environment clean by picking up and recycling. Yes #plasticfree is a worthy goal

    I’m really tired of filling up my trash can/recycling bins of plastic. I have to use my own time and energy on dumping these unnecessary plastics!? I rather use my time on something useful. We don’t need anymore stress. Seriously, this is insane and I want this to end now.

    Are there any chemical-industrial processes that can transform plastic waste into something that is not harmful to our environment, however expensive? If so, that cost should be added to the cost of goods marketed with plastic containers or wrappings on a per ounce basis. This surcharge could be implemented on a local level and the funds used to transport and reprocess an equivalent amount of plastic waste.

    No more so-called "externalities" in our marketplace. You get what you pay for, and we are getting a dying ocean.
