Sonya Luz Hinton Constanza uses her life to illustrate how many modern products have plastic components, and how to limit our plastic consumption as much as possible.
She then looks at the average consumption rate of single-use plastic bags worldwide, and points to various cities which have already banned these bags, urging Taos to do the same.
