We can #BeatPlasticPollutionOctober 8, 2018
I’m sure you have been bombarded on your social media platforms on how we can’t do much to beat plastic.
And the statistics they present to you are scary and overwhelming. I just want you to know you aren’t the alone.
All of us want to make a difference, but don’t know how to start or don’t know what has already been started.
So take a look at some of the positive research I have been doing on how different countries are combating plastic pollution.
The situation is not as bad as it sounds. ( Trust me)
Gujarat has decided to combine plastic into the cement industry. The authorities in Gujrat noticed that 400 metric tonnes of plastic generated was either thrown into landfills, burnt of dumped into water bodies illegally. Hence they decided to start baling plastic and shred in, combining it into the cement. With this, around 4 lakh tonnes of plastic has been utilised perfectly. There is hope. gujarat is showing us the way.
I will keep updating the same post when I find articles.
