A Trillion plastic bags are used & 9 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year and it has now become critical, maybe even too late, to try and turn the problem around? However, businesses, institutions & governments including Green Peace are trying their best to curb this problem & many businesses/councils/governments are banning plastic or replacing it with compostable solutions. They also enforcing waste separation at the source which may also help in the longer term.

But even though this is a good effort "Green Peace" pointed out recently, that the most important factor in reducing the plastic waste, is in fact education! Meaning that people have to be taught the "true value" of plastic if it is to be used & recycled in the correct way. People perceive plastic as disposable & that's exactly why it is disposed of so irresponsibly?

If people can learn to appreciate a new beauty in plastic, like that I have captured in these clear plastic take-out utensils, they may value plastic more in future. Plastic only became our enemy, because of our misconception & lack of knowledge, and that's why we dispose of it so easily. I hope my photo above helps people see the latent beauty in plastic & that if we valued it more, and disposed or recycled it more responsibly, that it could, in fact, be a very useful resource.
