We don’t need more plastic

Re: Here’s why plastic bags shouldn’t be in the green bin, April 2.

The City of Ottawa has come to an agreement with Orgaworld to accept animal feces and other organic waste contained in plastic, in order to get citizens to better  participate in organic waste recycling.

I do not believe that Orgaworld can do such a task adequately. When the oceans are already reported to contain micro-fibres of plastic that are being consumed and assimilated into seafood that will be in our future diet, we should not accept the company’s bold guarantee just to correct a bad economic deal for the city.
