The plastic waste crisis


Discussion and Analysis


The current situation is that massive amounts of plastic waste pollutes our air, water and land every day. This poses the risk of damaging our environment on a massive scale. The purpose and outcome of this investigation was to spread awareness and to conduct research on the plastic waste crisis that have led to a solution that then inspire change and action in local and global communities regarding the plastic waste crisis. I found that the negative effects of plastic pollution can be reduced by eliminating plastic waste in South-Africa by designing for recycling and the education and regulation of people regarding single-use products and the development of domestic and international recycling infrastructure.
