PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS

However, what happens after we throw it away will lead a big problem for our planet. The main problem with plastic is that most of it is not biodegradable, it does not rot like paper or food so instead, it can hang around in the environment for hundreds of years.

Almost everything is made from plastic from drink bottles, toothbrush to your shopping bags. We are living on a plastic world. Have you ever thought how many plastic you use on daily basis? Practically everything that comes today, is packed in plastic. Clearly plastic is everywhere you go, and 99% of most this plastic is produced using oil or gas.

Every single piece of plastic that each of us has ever used will probably still be anywhere on this earth! Most plastics effortlessly take more than 100 years to degrade. They often times end up in a landfill or usually incinerated which leads to air pollution.

Yet, greener alternatives to conventional petrochemical-based plastics are hardly see application nowadays. Biodegradable bags were previously far more pricey than conventional plastic material until now. However, there are lots of groups trying to help tackle plastic pollution and cut the amount of plastic we use.
