With many of us becoming aware of the detriment that plastics pose to the environment, as a result of recent research and campaigns carried out for World Environment Day, there are some persons who are truly taking on an active role in finding a solution for single use plastics or plastics on a whole.
For instance, in one article “Boxed In” by Janice Kaspersen, the editor of Stormwater Magazine by Forester Media, she looks at boxed water sold in biodegradable containers.
Another recent article published on September 4th 2018, Janice Kaspersen, discusses how chemists at the University of Illinois, are trying to create plastics that break down in components that would not interfere with the environment under certain conditions such as heat and ultraviolet light.
Such tests and innovations make me really hope that the scourge of plastics can be brought under control.
What do you guys think? Do you think that we will ever truly be able to “beat plastic pollution?
