Plastic is a interesting subject in my mind. Its so useful. Think about in your daily life how many times you come into contact with plastic? From water bottles to packaging for products. Some of us recycle it so it can be reused. But many people don’t recycle it. Third world country’s and even the united states people just toss it on the ground. Now im not saying littering is good but at least with paper products it can be decomposed unlike plastic. Plastic will not dissolve in your life time or even your kids. Often plastic ends up in water ways. Our water ways like rivers lead to the ocean. Startling enough there are hug piles of plastic that gather together in the ocean. This is a real environmental issue. From pollution of the water to killing sea animals. The United States would be fullish to think they can handle this issue by themselves. WE need a world wide push to reduce the amount of plastic consumed. One way we can do this is reduce the amount of plastic by switching over to paper. Something as simple as the bags we use at the grocery. Another thing we could do in developed countrys is the use of refillable water bottles. And recycling more. We need to educate countrys and get them on bored. Groups of people have tried to tackle the problem of plastic in the ocean. But in my opinion they have failed. The issue has not been solved. With out support from many country’s you fight a loosing battle. If the people put pressure on the businesses that produce or use these good, they will change to make money. next time you toss a peice of plastic on the ground think to yourself, where will this end up? Will i be killing animal?
