I accidentally opened a website where plastic is highly recommended to save the planet earth. I did not get it at first. I thought that the author is insane and how could the plastic bags help to save the planet? He pointed out that plastic is recyclable unlike the paper bags where many tress will be cut down and soon forest will be gone. People will get hungry without trees. In that point, I agree. Plastic is good if recycled, re-used and disposed properly.
How many tons of waste do one household produces in a year? I don’t have the exact figure but I guess if collected, one family can produce about hundreds of kilograms in a year. If these families know how to recycle, then they can save money and save the earth at the same time. You can save huge amount with recyclable materials like aluminum or by just using the top 10 recycled tone cartridges.
Plastics can take up to 500 years before it can be decomposed. It just means that plastic can be used hundred times before you disposed it off to manufacturers that recycle these materials. It’s about time for us to understand our great responsibility towards mother nature. So act now to save our mother earth.
