A Commonsense Proposal to Deal With Plastics Pollution: Stop Making So Much Plastic – USAPosted on December 7, 2021 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
The United States leads the world in the generation of plastic waste and needs a comprehensive strategy by the end of next year to curb its devastating impacts on ocean health, marine wildlife and communities, a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine concludes.
A committee of academic experts who wrote the report at the request of Congress described an environmental crisis that will only get worse as plastic production, nearly all from fossil fuels, continues to soar.
In fact, the first of the study’s main recommendations is to stop making so much plastic.
There is too much plastic to consider recycling as a solution. So the only other main change that can be done is to top making so much plastic. Especially the unnecessary single items. They need to be stopped from production. Yes it will impact a few people and businesse,s but better than impacting the whole planet!
