When you work for an organisation like Cynnal Cymru-Sustain Wales you tend to meet other environmental scientists, politicians, green activists and academics who broadly share your view.
It is therefore very encouraging and refreshing to meet people who are not 'green' professionals but citizens who have through their own experience and observation reached the same conclusion as the scientists.
One such person is Linda Ware who lived without a bin for three months and has embraced the challenge of living without plastic and is determined to escape the snares of the consumerist economic culture which is addicted to energy consumption and perpetuates the fantasy that continual infinite growth is possible in a finite universe.
