Globally, humans have evolved into expecting the comfortable parts of our lives to be freely given without responsibility of learning how to conserve and recycle our resources properly. In his new blog post, Jim Fitterling highlights the known issue of plastic waste filling our oceans. He provides the statistics on how many pounds are produced, what types of products are the worst offenders and sends a call to the world to ban together and help find solutions for this crisis.
- The key to reducing plastic pollution lies in our economy, and the creation and consumption of goods.
- Plastics are a good thing, and help keep more people alive and healthier.
- The problem with plastic is that we consume too much of it, and do not reuse nearly enough of it.
“despite our technological prowess, humans have so far been unable or unwilling to stem the tide of pollution entering our ocean.”
