We’ve never been huge fans of plastic, as a resource, timber makes much more sense on the face of it. Timber is literally money growing on trees (or in them) and seems fairly sustainable when well managed, while the only thing plastic really gets associated with is rubbish. We try really hard not to use single use plastic bags at Moxwai, and run a paperless office – if you ever after some tips on how to do that give us a buz. In the meantime here is a pretty cool video on ending plastic. Also check this post from the BBC on the plastic eating worm! http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39694553
Fingers crossed that when artifical intelligence comes along, machines that can learn 20,000 years of human history in a day, are smart enough to crack the plastic problem!
