The Oct. 27 news article “Report: Some fast-food items contain plastics linked to health problems” highlighted consequences brought by our society’s demand for convenience. We have been told the food market demands soft, single-use plastics and that widespread plastics litter is just inevitable.
Of course, compostable food packaging options are already available for interested companies or individuals. (Personally, I purchase food packages made of sugar cane to support fundraisers for my local political party.)
