It’s in your toothbrush … your clothes … your earbuds. Chances are, you’re touching it right now. Today on the Magic Morning Show, Gino was talking with National Geographic KiDS Editor Ariane Szu Tu all about plastic! Plastic is absolutely everywhere and in practically everything we touch, from pens to water bottles to sports equipment. And a lot of it is used once and then thrown away. Unfortunately, it takes a REALLY long time for plastic to break down and it can be harmful to our environment, especially wildlife. But why and when did we start using it in so much stuff? And how do we stop?
