Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about plastic waste management. In the current world, plastic pollution is a significant problem. They cannot be recycled, are not biodegradable, and pose a risk to the environment.
A considerable amount of plastic trash is thrown out each year. It would take four times as much plastic around the world as is thrown out in the United States alone. By 2050, there will likely be more plastic in our seas than fish if we do not act right away.
Plastic pollution is detrimental to people’s health as well as the environment. We must begin taking this issue seriously because if we do nothing, it will only become worse from here. Plastic waste is a significant problem. It has gotten into the food chain, poisoned our seas, and blocked our streams.
Yet, there’s also a huge chance. We can create new products and resources that could advance our economies, cultures, and ecosystems if we can alter the way we manage plastic. To make this happen, it is crucial to guarantee that everyone has access to fairly costly plastic recycling or reprocessing services so they may recycle their trash into new items.
Recycling plastic trash is one approach to lessen its influence on the environment, but it does not dissolve and takes up to a thousand years to break down. To do this, it is critical to identify and categorize the various types of plastic, locate a company that will buy surplus plastic waste, and locates a recycler that would accept it for free or at a little cost. Thank you.
