Attitudes are changing toward plastics, Omair Imtiaz argues.
Plastics have officially reached the far corners of the Earth. They’re in our oceans, landfills, recycle bins — and they’re piling up right here on the Island and around the globe.
The waste we produce is being mismanaged. Even our current recycling systems are flawed to say the least. Amongst recyclable plastics lies non-recyclables, garbage and even compost!
Plastics.com Opinion: Headlines like this ‘leave plastic behind‘ and gyre scrap ‘islands’ and other hyperbole misinform and confuse the public. We can’t ‘leave’ plastics behind overall as there are no superior replacements for ‘all’ plastics.
