A recent study estimated that 8,300 million metric tons of plastics have been produced to date, but since about 91 % isn’t recycled, the vast majority has ended up in our environment. Think reusable, not disposable.
There are a lot of controversies on plastic ban. While some strongly advocate for banning non-essentials completely like plastic bags, single use plastic & plastic straws, others advocate deeper shifts in consumption of fossil fuels, coals, fuel etc.
