In response to the Dobbs V. Jackson Women’s Health Organization Ruling by the U. S. Supreme Court, a protest rally is planned for Sunday in Davenport. “We must ‘take heart’ and remember that neither the courts nor the governor, neither alone nor in concert, can deny Iowans their long-standing and hard-won basic privacy protections,” Iowa House District 97 Democratic candidate Ken Croken said in a news release.

The Impact of Plastic

Less than 10% of all plastic ever produced has been recycled. In 2021, 94% of plastic waste went into our landfills, or ended up as litter on our lands, streets, and waterways. It takes more than 500 years for plastic to degrade. Half of all the plastic ever produced has been made in the last 13 years. If we stay on this pace, we will be producing three times more plastic by 2050 than we are currently. Last October, the Mississippi River City and Town’s Plastic Pollution Initiative found that cigarette butts and plastic waste were the top sources of litter in the Quad Cities. We can do better.
