why oh why does everything have to be made out of plastic? Pretty much anything that can be made out of plastic can be made out of other materials—materials that could potentially be grown in Wales and provide an additional cash crop for Welsh farmers. Yes, manufacturers sometimes need to protect their products during transit, but they’re going way overboard with it—for instance, bottles of ink that come encased in massively thick plastic after they sold it for decades with minimal packaging. Perhaps the Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee could investigate and challenge manufacturers and supermarkets to explain their decisions as to their use of plastics.
