It is well known that plastics are harmful to our world, and yet there is so much confusion and grey area when it comes to how we manage our plastic waste and can reduce our plastic use. I believe that the reduction of single use plastic consumption should be at the top of everyone's to do list when it comes to building a more sustainable world #unleashvalues.
I envision a future where we no longer need to feel guilty everyday when we go to buy the groceries that we need to survive because they are no longer wrapped in harmful plastics. I also hope that one day we will be able to feel safe eating seafood because the harmful chemicals released by our plastic waste is no longer creeping it's way up the food chain disrupting endocrine function.
To combat this issue I think that we need to intervene by banning single use plastics and by creating laws which protect us and our invaluable ecosystems from endocrine disrupting pollutants. We need to encourage lawmakers to enforce laws that hold producers responsible for the proper management of the waste they create so that we can move towards a safer future.
