    I think we should be tackling trash island, and this is a step but...

    Andy Clarke, CEO of one of Britain’s biggest supermarket chains for six years, said the only solution was for retailers to reject plastic entirely in favour of more sustainable alternatives like paper, steel, glass and aluminium.

    These alternatives are going to be hard to get behind. Most things are covered in plastic because it's cheap, plus a lot of it is see-through, I like to see my food before I buy a lot of it, that means glass and glass is extremely expensive. I can get my milk in a glass bottle but it's $10 a gallon, $5 for the milk plus a bottle deposit at the same price.

    Aluminum could possibly replace plastic in some things but I believe it was Lays tried switching the bags to a mostly recycled aluminum composite and people hated how loud the bags were.

    The problem with any of it though is that at least here in my area of America we can only recycle stuff the food hasn't touched, so in a box of cookies, we can recycle the box but not the bag that was in the box. That's kind of a bad thing. If we didn't have to be double super safe with the double boxing/bagging we could swap most plastic bags to a box.
