    It appears the pics and sound are out of sync with each other.

    Good presentation, though. Thank you, Andrea.

    Great and useful advice! I have reset my intention to be more mindful of disposables and work towards promoting the circular system. Thank you kindly!

    My wife and I live simply because it is right action, even if the world extinguishes humans in 100 years. However, we do hope we influence our children, grandchildren, friends, and all their circle of friends and beyond. You may think we are less happy without TV, a car, a cell phone, a dishwasher or with 20 year old repaired but functioning furniture, with minimal clothing and footwear. But we are much happier with less to protect, less choices to make, not constantly shopping or money spent. The amount of choices are far fewer and not wasted on unimportant things, which was a practice of Albert Einstein dressing and living simply. We eat an organic whole food plant based diet(WFPBD) which has dramatically improved our health, reducing pollution from raising meat products, and from pesticides and other poisons on non-organic foods. We make our own coffee at a fraction of the cost of Starbucks or other venues and it is shade grown, preserving jungles, and very smooth and high quality, much better than you can buy out and with none of the plastic or non-recyclable cups. Doing beach cleanup and caring for recycling bins raises our awareness of the immensity of the problem and the thoughtlessness of many people blithe to pollution issues. Many beaches now have more plastic in the top foot, including micro plastics, than sand. Whales, dolphins, turtles, fish, and many other creatures are dying from plastics by eating small to micro plastics or being strangled, suffocated, injured, particularly with plastic bags and straws. We put in a lot of hard work learning but the future of the world for the next generations and all creatures who are disappearing in “The Sixth Great Extinction.”

    Thank you Andrea. Yes, I think it was the 70’s when the book Planned Obsolescence came out. I wonder if technology is really new knowledge or planned obsolescence. I’m surprised when I still see Smart Ones in the freezer aisle at the supermarket. I bought one years ago and couldn’t believe it wasn’t banned with the two plastic containers inside, one to drain. I was going to say “You have a long way to go”, but I should say “We have a long way to go. Thank you for your work.
