In order to help with the current plastic pollution crisis, which is occurring world wide, we can no longer rely on the actions of individuals. What is needed goes beyond reusing plastic bottles, not using straws and taking reusable bags to the supermarket.
Here are 4 ways that may help…
Recycle quality not just quantity.
Recycling targets tend to focus on quantity, but the quality of materials collected is just as important. Recycling ‘quality’ refers to how clean and well sorted individual materials are.
Ways to reduce your single-use plastic
A nationwide collection system would need to be introduced for materials suitable for recycling, from reworking household collections to collections from business premises and deposit and return schemes.
Stop collecting stuff for the sake of it
If the infrastructure to certain materials does not exist locally for them to be recycled and turned into something else then its only sensible for those items not to be collected.
Boost demand for recycled plastic
Countries like the UK need to develop their own demand for recycled material. This means supporting manufacturers to develop technology that can use it where possible.
