I envision a future where plastic is not used carelessly and efforts are made to recycle it as much as possible to work towards a circular economy.
I think it is important to think about the impacts of plastics, especially single-use forms. It is selfish to use plastic because of its cheap, convenient nature and I think many can agree that it is used to an unnecessarily extreme extent.
We need to create laws that force companies to deal with their own plastic waste. If they were responsible for taking care of it themselves, they would not be as careless with their plastic use.
In addition to this, I think it is important to have third parties that ensure that the companies are being truthful and taking care of their waste properly. For instance, Terracycle was claiming to recycle plastic, when it was actually ready to be burned for energy. A third-party intervention would prevent this.
