It has been lovely to see the beautiful display of Christmas lights around our Delta community this December.
People are making an effort to light up the dark evenings with beautiful displays, which are sending a message of hope at this difficult time.
However, I have also noticed a proliferation of plastic blow up Christmas toys on many front lawns. These plastic Christmas toys are colorful and some of them are fun for the children who see them, however, at a time when we need to re-think our way of improving and protecting our environment, are plastic inflatable toys, that get punctured and damaged and thrown into the landfill the way we want to go?
Sometimes the “fashionable” items manufactured by companies without thought or care for the environment need to be boycotted. We need to send a message that we do not want to leave even more non-biodegradable plastics in our landfills as our legacy for future generations.
