A local church group is applauding India’s goal to make the country free of single-use plastics by 2022. An initial attempt in India to place a national ban was changed to an awareness campaign on Wednesday, coinciding with the 150th-anniversary birthdate of Mahatma Gandhi. Wayne Kudick, a member of the Creation Care Team at Stella Maris Parish in northern Door County, says they have been practicing what they preach.
Kudick cites Coca-Cola’s efforts to eliminate all plastic packaging and use recyclable containers by 2030. Stella Maris Parish in northern Door County has a mission to protect, sustain and preserve the environment.
