| Rabbis join call to cut single-use plastic, starting with religious holidays

Thirty religious Zionist rabbis have signed a letter calling on Israelis to reduce their use of disposable plastic items as much as possible, beginning with the upcoming religious holidays, which start Sunday evening.

The letter — the brainchild of a 27-year-old student at Ben-Gurion University in southern Israel — notes that Israel is a world leader in the consumption of single-use plastic and that 90 percent of beach trash is made of plastic. The discarded plastic “comes back to our plates in fish, salt, and even the water we drink,” the letter says. “Research shows that we consume an average of five grams of plastic every week and small particles of plastic have even been found in mother’s milk.”
