Reblog Feature: Five Facts Of Plastic Pollution

According to Wikipedia, plastic pollution is, “Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles (e.g. plastic bottles, bags and microbeads) in the Earth’s environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans.”

Unfortunately, many of us have been living in a society where items are disposed very quickly, from fast fashion to fast food. What can we do to combat this plastic problem?

  1. True. If only we all can take it upon ourselves to ensure proper waste disposal. I hate it when folks just throw on the floor wrappers and cans and being carefree about it. Not minding there is a reason why there are bins in place.

  2. When I was a kid we would walk along the roads and pick up all the glass bottles and return them for a deposit. That’s s how kids made a little extra money in the old days. I remember when a 2 liter bottle of Pepsi was glass. But now with plastics we have to pay to have it recycled which is an incentive to just toss it out. ( unless you really care about planet earth. ) So, if a person could find a way to efficiently recycle and do it without making the user pay then you’ll recruit the hands that are not as motivated by the environment. I’d love to see glass return because it’s less toxic anyway.

      1. I have seen a few videos on YouTube about home recycling of plastics but it seems like it could expose you to the toxins. One person was shredding plastic bags and boiling them until they melt. He pressed melted clump into a mold and made a wood Carvers mallot.

      2. Most plastic bags are HDPE ( High density polyethylene ) which means that they’re the easiest to recycle. With a little creativity and some research they be transformed into almost anything. I have even seen people twist them into rope and weave reusable bags out of them. That keeps the put of the environment longer.
