What is Plastic Waste?

So what is plastic waste? Plastic waste is discarded plastic material that is not reused or recycled. Most things come in plastic packages and once we have used what was in the package, we discard the plastic which is why plastic waste is rapidly becoming a global problem.

Plastic is widely used because it makes life easier. It improves our living standards and nutrition. It is widely used in manufacturing, healthcare, construction, transport, agriculture, transportation. This is to say that so much of what we consume comes in plastic. It is a cheap, durable material. However, most of this plastic ends up in our ocean and landfills. 

What Causes Plastic Waste?

As we have mentioned above, plastic use is global and it is one of the cheapest and yet durable materials. Because it is so cheap and durable, it is easier to just discard it because you can always get another plastic very cheaply. Other reasons are:

Growing population: The more people there are, the more need for cheap packaging material which in turn causes more plastic needs. 

Disposable Mentality: This means that we have this idea that plastic is disposable. We don’t care about preserving it because there’ll always be plastic available to use

Plastic does not decompose: Another major contributor to plastic waste pollution is the fact that it does not decompose. This means that every plastic that has ever been made still exists somewhere, either filling up our landfills or our oceans.   

Managing Plastic Waste Cambridge
