Or more exactly the environmental issues which dominated the headlines such a short time ago?
OK we are flying less and the ozone layer has benefited enormously.
We are being encouraged to drive instead of using public transport. The suggestion of cycling is impractical for many and new bikes are like hens’ teeth anyway - speaking as someone whose D’s family have had all five bikes stolen during lockdown.
Before Covid19 we were urged to take our own reusable cups to Costas or Starbucks.
I shopped with my own stash of cloth/linen/cotton bags or “bags for life” Any plastic bags which came with online shopping were returned to Ocado who gave me 5p per bag.
I had phased out plastic bottles of hand wash and switched to traditional soap (also for shampoo)
Now I have eleventy million plastic carrier bags from my online shopping clogging up my garage, not to mention boxes from Amazon, , plastic bottles of hand wash and hand gel are everywhere, beer in pubs is, I believe, being sold in disposable plastic glasses, there are those awful little plastic sachets of mustard, ketchup, s+p etc and I read this morning that there are more face masks than jellyfish in our oceans.
I don’t have an answer - does anybody else?
