Are CEOs paid too much?
The extent of plastic pollution in most of the nations of the world has been so great over the past centuries. As such, the cost that would be associated with the processes or initiatives by different agencies to completely remove the plastics from the environment would be too prohibitive to meet. The only way that would assist in the process of reducing the pollution by plastics is by ensuring that the amount of plastics that get to the environment are reduced. There are many ways of reducing the amount of plastic wastes that get disposed into the environment. The different ways of preventing plastic pollution are discussed within this paper. The solutions to the problem of plastic pollution, including proof of the feasibility of the solutions are included in the paper.
The first mechanism to reduce the amount of plastics that get disposed in the environment is by recycling the waste plastics to manufacture new products that are useful to the masses in one way or another. When the wastes are recycled, they are never disposed into the water bodies or the land masses. That prevents the pollution of the environment by the plastics. That has been practiced by adidas in Germany and the method helped a lot in the reduction of plastic wastes that are deposited in the ocean. The adidas company has been recycling waste plastics to make sports products that are useful and prevent the disposal of the wastes to on the land masses and the oceans. That is one of the ways that have been used to reduce the amount of plastic wastes in the environment.
Secondly, the imposition of taxes on the products that lead to the deposition of wastes or lead to the production of wastes in the environment should be done as a way of reducing the amount of plastic wastes in the environment. When the government imposes taxes on goods or products that lead to the deposition of plastic wastes, the producers of the goods are likely to reduce the amount of wastes they introduce into the environment as a result of the taxes. That is one of the ways of ensuring that the amount of plastic wastes both in the land masses and the oceans reduces. As such, it prevents the cost of removing the wastes from the oceans or other places. That method has been approved in the United Kingdom by Lib Dems to implement it in order to reduce the amount of plastic pollution in the nation and worldwide.
In addition, the ban on some plastic products that are not very important but used by individuals should be used as a way of preventing the introduction of plastic wastes into the environment. For instance, the ban on the plastic beads in their cosmetics also referred to as the micro beads in several states of the US has proven effective in the prevention of plastic pollution in the United States. In Oregon, for instance, the lawmakers are on the verge of approving the ban on micro beards by the women. The other states that have implemented the same policy include California, Washington, and Illinois. The state of Illinois was the first state to ban the micro beads.
These are some of the methods that have been applied in the different parts of the world in the bid to reduce the amounts of plastic pollution in the universe. As stated earlier, the removal of the plastic wastes from the environment is more costly than the process of prevention of the pollution. That is the reason for the various processes as mentioned above to prevent the disposal or introduction of the wastes into the environment. When some of these mechanisms are implemented, the plastic waste pollution will be reduced and the environment will be a friendly place to all the living organisms.
