"Researcher discovers breathing is bad for your health", etc.I'm going to take on a some issues and causes here to figure out and share what I think is the right thing to do. Not big ones, mostly small ones. No answers today, just a list:
- Plastic shopping bags - The latest fad is to not use plastic shopping bags for groceries etc, using cloth instead. OK so far, but for years I've been re-using those same plastic bags in the kitchen garbage. If my supply is cut off, and I start using regular plastic garbage bags, is the world any better off? What's the alternative in the kitchen?
- The kids had $20 lying around from a recent pet sitting gig. They've been donating profits and for Malaria Day yesterday I suggested they buy some nets. Then while explaining the Malaria issue to them I noticed a mention of the nets being diverted for use as overly effective fishing nets. I'm hopeful the nets are really a 'net' positive but will do more research. We donated the nets anyway.
