Every year since I was a freshman, there has been a presentation or debate on plastic, basically on the topic of taxing plastic and banning its use.
I scanned the classroom and found that two-thirds of the people were using metal cups and the rest were using plastic water cups or mineral water bottles, and I was part of the rest.
I was bored with the topic because it had been too long since a new topic about 'plastic' had come up and people were just talking about 'we need to keep putting taxes on plastic! That way no one will buy it! ' 'We need to ban plastic altogether! Ban it at the source! '....... It's so boring.
I have this strange idea that we are all being guided by some organization or force or doctrine that leads us to argue about plastic, and there must be a deeper reason behind it, or maybe I'm daydreaming because the topic is so boring that I'm starting to develop conspiracy theories.
I hope that plastic can reduce the harm it causes in the coming time, I don't expect all the plastic in the world to disappear one day, that's not realistic yet, I want the harm of plastic to gradually decrease until we can find the perfect replacement for plastic.
