Plastic and environmental problems — 5 Comments

  1. Thanks . Iam new on this forum. splendid job you at doing. Is there any technology on the horizon for the efficient management of polythene shopping bags which are so ubiquitous and have become such a monster in developing countries of the world?

  2. I touch on this question in https://sustainingourworld.com/2017/05/04/tackle-danger-plastic-bags-environment/ In much of the US, people can take plastic bags back to the grocery store for recycling. They become raw material for Trex, among other things. Crafters turn plastic bags into various useful objects, including bedrolls for homeless people. Efficient? Maybe not yet. Developing countries probably have some (even more inefficient) means of managing them. We need to do better, but the best way to start is to use reusable bags instead.
