SEWING THE SEEDS OF CHANGE
What happens when a scary statistic about single-use plastic and news of a whale dying from ingesting plastics brings two like-minded people together?
ONE SMALL ACTION TOWARD ZERO WASTE
Did you know that in Canada, nearly 90% of single-use plastics (plastic forks, spoons, knives, straws for example) end up in landfills, incinerators, lakes, parks and oceans? I was floored by this statistic and am making it rollë's mission to eliminate the need for plastic cutlery AND to keep fabric remnants from landfills by creating something useful. I believe that a world without single-use plastic is possible and I'm betting that if you're reading this, you do too.
A WHALE OF A TALE
It's funny how things work out. The night before my lunch with Judi, I couldn't stop tossing and turning over a disturbing news segment about a dead whale that washed ashore in Indonesia.
Cause of death? Having ingested over 1,000 pieces of plastic.
WHAM! That morning I woke up compelled to do something. To do anything I could to reduce the use of plastic in my (my family's) life.
