E-motion – Ep 04 – Myths about using disposable plastic products

We’re continually tossing stuff away, whether it’s a single item or perhaps…everything. As a result, we’ve also created plastics, which take decades to biodegrade, making them harmful and poisonous trash since not only are they exceedingly challenging to break down.
