I remember string shopping bags, paper and cardboard packaging, cloth nappies, and re-usable glass bottles of milk, pop and beer. My first notion of plastic was of some small toy that came in a Christmas cracker with a ‘made in China’ stamp. Today I pay 5p for a plastic bag and re-use it beyond repair but even when I carry rucksack or canvas shoppers, I still bring home a tonnage of plastic which I cannot opt out of – a shrink wrapped swede, a pack of 4 apples, grapefruit juice, polythene bags for fruit and veg, as well as fish and meat…. today’s diptych is more salutary than usual but the connections are obvious and the message is there!
