We are not eating plastics but we are exposed to plastics in every aspect of our life. I believe if people do not take action to ban single-use plastics, the whole ecosystem will suffer severely.
Thus, I envision that decision-makers, producers, and consumers all be responsible for their actions, not only considering the instantaneous moment we get in touch with plastic, but also considering how it comes from and after disposal where will it go.
It requires cooperation and responsibility from all levels of interventions. Even now, there is not a single case stating the residual effects are significant and thus stop the program, we all know this definitely is not the case. Government must remove the conflict of interest in EIA legislation to make the assessment function as it should. Single-use plastic bag production should be banned from the origin. Individuals should gradually reduce the frequency of using plastic bags and try to not use them only once for the plastic bags they already had.
