Fixing the waste disposal and waste management problems are important for every living creature on the planet. There are many job opportunities that we can create with waste, when more reusing and recycling is done.
The Zero Waste Plan
The Zero Waste Plan is best for the environment as a lot more reusing, reducing and recycling will be done. Spreading the word about the importance of environmental protection is very important at this time.
Consumerism has caused an increase in the amount of waste persons discard these days. Single-use-plastic has become a huge problem as plastic straws and plastic packaging is being swallowed by marine creatures and they are dying when the eat plastic waste and feel full when they are actually starving.
Reducing the amount of non biodegradable packaging we use each day, can help us to have a clean and healthy environment.
Micro plastic in the ocean is digested by the fish humans eat, and that is bad for our health.
Plastic is toxic and we can all do our part to protect the environment and our own health.
There were many persons who believed that the oceans were the perfect place to dump everything they didn’t want, because it would just disappear, but this isn’t so. Our waste does terrible damage to the same marine animals we like to eat and that endangers our health.
Implementing the zero waste plan will solve many of these problems we have because of plastic pollution at this time.
Telling the Children
When children know about these issues, they will try to help in many ways to protect the environment. Persons have supported a project that provides ebooks for the children, they can learn about the effect plastic pollution has on the environment and what they can do to help their parents to reduce plastic pollution.
Fixing the Plastic Pollution Problem
A lot of manufacturers have started doing their part as they are trying to fix the plastic pollution problem, even though there is a lot more to be done. The most important part of the plan to reduce plastic pollution, is helping people all over the world to be more aware of the damage plastic pollution causes.
There are too many persons who are not aware of the plastic pollution problem and the number of years it takes for plastic to break down and become a part of the soil.
In places where the population is not informed about the plastic islands that are found in the ocean, because of the plastic pollution problem, the people litter the streets as there is no proper waste disposal system in place and all their waste washes into the ocean whenever the rain falls. They don’t think about the micro plastic problem and what happens when sea creatures swallow plastic and die.
If more was done to help persons to be aware of the problems that are caused when plastic waste is not reused, reduced and recycled; the plastic pollution problem would not be as wide spread as it is today.
Zero Waste and the Benefits
When the zero waste plan is implemented and persons are aware of how good it is for the environment to be protected, they will use separate bins for waste disposal, do more composting and they will also reduce the amount of plastic containers they use.
There will be more new products that are made from recycled material and there could be a reduction in the price of goods.
Less waste will get to the oceans and the marine animals will not be hurt anymore. There will be less micro-plastic in the sea as well. The damage that is done to the human body by micro plastic will be reduced.
More jobs will be created as more recycling will be done and waste separation will be done by human hands. Poverty reduction and crime reduction could be some of the benefits we see when the zero waste plan is implemented.
There will also be more waste to energy projects in more places. A reduction in the use of fossil fuels who reduce Global Warming and that would be a very good thing.
Having a Clean Environment
It is important for us to live in a clean environment where there is clean drinking water and air. We should do more to reduce the number of toxins that is released in the air when we manufacturers produce so many items daily. Our air is badly polluted when our landfills are burning as well.
Let us do more to encourage every one to work towards implementing the zero waste plan so that our environment can be clean and healthy.
Waste separation is important as more countries are finding out how important it is for persons to do proper waste separation, this helps the persons who do recycling to do their jobs in a more efficient way.
Project for the children and the environment
trong>The Zero Waste Lifestyle>
As time goes by, more persons have adapted the zero waste lifestyle and there are stores that have started selling zero waste products. When these stores are supported and there is less waste discarded the environment will be healthy and there might be less cancers and other illnesses to deal with.
We can start today
If we all decide to do our part in making the environment clean, all the problems we are facing at this time will slowly go away. Parents can easily do more to inform their children about the problems humans have created on the planet, so they can start learning to change the way things are done, and start looking for solutions for the existing problems.
