It's been one month since the last podcast upload. Wazzup? Sorry, but I was sick and could not talk with bronchitis and associated problems. But I am back at it and I apologize for the delay. Thank you for being patient. Believe me, all the those days that I couldn't talk I was concerned that I wasn't uploading. In this Visit the Zoo Episode 084 we take a look at areas of threats and concerns to the animal world and a solution that I hope helps out. Did you know that the world is drowning in plastics and countries around the world are banning the use of disposable plastic and in particular single-use plastic bags. In this episode I look at and describe in detail the problem and solutions forced on all of us through stringent legislation passed banning plastic bags around the world. My solution is my own line of reusable grocery and tote bags with designs you choose. For a quick look go to: https://www.grocery-bags.com. Hundreds of beautiful designs are now up and ready for selection with daily additions that soon will be in the thousands. Check it out.
