We must reduce the use of plastic in our everyday life.

We must first realize that the solution needs to save the environment, our health and lower the littering potential of plastic bags.

At the current time, we should think about having multiple partial, imperfect solutions that deal with the most critical issues of real degradability. Doing so will allow us to buy the planet some more time to find better solutions on both fronts. If we have oxo-biodegradable bags, they must be used multiple times to justify their toll on our health. More importantly, we need to add pressure to shift the debate and increase the chances of finding a viable alternative solution to single-use plastics by widening the net and thinking about a ban of all single-use consumer plastics, from bags to bottles to drinking cups in the region except, of course, for medical and critical needs.
