Kryptonite Cape

A young boy wearing a black garbage-bag cape looks up at the sky. Large text says, “Kryptonite Cape! Loving the Illusion.”

Plastics are everywhere in our lives today. Sure, a plastic garbage bag makes for an easy Superman cape, but at what cost to the environment? You can’t buy just one garbage bag. Instead, you buy box after box, and so do we all. The sum of all single-use plastics has a big carbon footprint, contributing to the greenhouse effect. What causes global warming? We do.
