Staunton recently stopped recycling plastics. This is a problem because the climate crisis requires immediate action. I am aware that there have been more than a few other attempts to get Staunton to recycle. If more information on this topic is needed:
- Humans have wrecked the earth and it is our duty to put things right.
- The arctic is melting due to greenhouse gasses.
- N o one is taking action. Action is what will save our planet.
- There is no planet B.
Plastic can take up to 1,000 years for plastic bottles to decompose, and in that time more than half of it reaches the ocean. This alone should be enough for Staunton to recycle. Staunton needs to take action and recycle to help save the world. Staunton needs to listen to what the community is telling it and recycle ASAP.
