Topic Number 3 Plastic

sunny

As discussed in Topic Number 1 – Toilets, Japan is doing its bit towards conserving water but unfortunately the same cannot be said about using plastic. Everything comes wrapped in plastic and not just once but as many times as they think is necessary. I went to the shops the other day and bought some soap and milk. They were each put in their own plastic bag and when I tried to put them in the same bag she wouldn’t let me. Hence the bottom drawer in Merilyn’s kitchen is full of plastic bags!

Its funny how everywhere we go in the world we see things that shock us. I guess water is precious to them, but landfill not such as stress. xx
