The plastic and styrofoam trash at the restaurants is a man made problem that should be addressable.
If we created the mess, we should be able to get out of it, atleast we hope.
In the name of progress, many times our civilization created short term band-aid solutions. We later understand that they are more messier than the problems they were supposed to address, if any.
Iam sure the better sense will prevail in the society and we realize some simpler solutions used earlier were better and we re”search” and innovate again 😅
The mother earth must be laughing. She has seen many civilization in its history over millennia biting to dust when the so-called progress was not inline with the greater good.
Its a cycle and we will also either get out of this junk pile or the mother knows how to discipline its children.
