Taking your rubbish out to the bin happens daily for most people or even a couple times a day. Then you put your bin on the kerb so the garbage truck can collect your waste. Now its out of site and out of mind. This is what people like. Now they think that the rubbish is no longer their problem. But it is.
Every single piece of plastic ever created still exists. It never goes away. A straw that we will use for five minutes will still be around even when you are dead. There is no such thing as "throw away" because it won't go away!
Plastic never biodegrades. Even so called biodegradable plastics. The truth is that this "biodegradable" plastic does something very diffrent. It breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces. But these tiny pieces can often be more deadly then a larger piece of plastic.
So what can we do to help stop the plastic crisis? A very simple action that will make a lot of difference is say no to single use plastics like plastic straws, bags, cutlery and plates. Instead of using these plastic items use reusable ones instead. Or with straws just don't use them. Just drink out of the cup. It's not that difficult. You may think does one straw really make a difference? It does.
