Plastic pollution could be slashed by 80% by 2040, UN says

The UN Environment Programme gave a report which states that Global plastic pollution could be reduced to 80% by 2040. The agency said that there are changes that need to eliminate this and are stated below 1.By eliminating unnecessary plastics 2. Increasing the reuse of plastics by boosting recycling 3.Enforcing packaging guidelines to increase recycalability of products among others. If government policies regulate the changes that means plastic pollution would drop to about 40m tons by 2040. If the changes are incorporated it will help reduce the damage caused by plastics to health,the climate and the environment. Its upto to us to take care of this environment and live a healthy life with clean air thus avoiding diseases from a filthy environment. fb-messenger://share?link=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theguardian.com%2Fenvironment%2F2023%2Fmay%2F16%2Fplastic-pollution-could-be-slashed-by-80-by-2040-un-says%3FCMP%3Dshare_btn_me&app_id=180444840287

        This might Not be possible if they don't regulate the plastic production industries!!

          The UN should also tackle the issue of European Countries exporting there plastic waste to other countries for recyling.

                  I wonder what they'll find in those sheep when they die. And many of them will die from starvation when their rumens (stomachs) fill up with plastic.

                            Plastic pollution produces a staggering amount of carbon dioxide, amplifies the greenhouse effect, and warms our planet even more.

                                    plastics can be recycled and used to produce other products.This will create a good ecosystem

                                      Plastic in the oceans may also interfere with the oceans capacity to absorb and sequester carbon dioxide, thus creating another pathway through which plastic pollution contributes to accelerate climate change.

                                            This are great news , hope everyone in the world can follow this policy on reusing plastics and reducing its usage.

                                              The matter of plastic use Reduction is critical to understanding how the plastic materials interact with water and air pollution ; reduction of greenhouse gases A plan like this would dramatically improve and reduce plastic pollution, further it seems to be straightforward enough to implement with positive results!
