My vision is to live in a world where I dont have to worry about future health (endocrine disruption) and environmental implications because of microplastics in my food, accessories, clothes, etc. It is really unfortunate to think that most of the plastic we see in our everyday life is stuck in a vicious cycle that has no end because you can't recycle it. So if we can't recycle it why can't we minimize it? I think the very least we can do is ban single use plastics worldwide as it is scientifically proven they are of harm to the environment and human health. To be completely honest there hasn’t been one case in my life where I have heard of a positive benefit to single use plastics. So why are they still around? Why are companies still making them? And why are there no regulatory actions by global governments that ultimately ban the manufacturing of these harmful plastics? Ultimately the answer is, we need more preemptive action. There are multiple alternative materials that have been researched and cause less GHG emissions than plastic in the long run. As a community we need to work with governments and bring these solutions to attention as well as identify them as if they are a BIG DEAL.
