We are literally made from the same chemical elements as stardust.   Nearly every atom within us was once inside an exploding Supernova star. We are all part of a highly creative evolutionary process or vortex that progresses in an infinite cycle from dark to light, from night to day. As part of our evolution it is crucial for us to recycle plastic to conserve energy and protect the environment by reducing water pollution and air pollution from the harmful chemicals and greenhouse gasses which are released from it in landfill sites.
