I envision a future where alternatives to single-use plastics are priortized and used when possible. Over 50% of the current 380 million tons of plastic produced is from single-use plastic. These single-use plastics are utilized for only a few moments, but are then on the planet for over several hundred years. I value a healthy earth that will translate to a healthy life for us and all the other living things on it. Government should invest in improvements to alternatives so that single-use plastic is no longer an option for companies to use. More education should also be provided, if people realized how harmful plastics are, the culture around it would socially change and spark a sense of urgency.
