If you go well, 2030 will be a pretty special year.

More than 170 countries, global and local community, have pledged to "significantly reduce" the amount of plastic consumption by 2030. Success will result in less plastic contamination in our oceans, lakes and rivers.

Nowadays, societies love all over the world are connected with love. Just like some love stories, this is one unfortunate ending that causes plastic bags, straws and takeout containers strewn about the global environment.

The researchers who pollute the pollution of wildlife and learn the effect, would be better if we did not know about the planets in the 2030s, which show the dead whale's stomachs, the distant island beaches and pollute tap water and marine products.

Time is good news about the environment, including stories about how cities and countries are attracting more sustainable ways of plastics and other waste materials, and how children play clean beaches.

Wait for the reason

Scientists know about the contamination of planets about four decades of our oceans. It is common in rivers, lakes and soils. Plastic contamination does not know the boundaries, small plastic plastics that are found in the poles of the yard and even on the distant slopes of the French Pinein mountains.

Plastic waste damages the ecosystems, tears are coral reefs and fills the way of marine life. In the absence of action, the number of globally produced plastic waste expires from 2015 to 2060, per year to 155 and 265 million tons.

As a welcome response, global leaders have decided. In March of the UN Environmental Assembly in Nairobi, Environment Ministers signed a voluntary commitment to single-use plastic products, including straw, shopping bags and other low plastic items that are once used for landfills.

Similar objectives are related to plastic pollution issues by municipal, provincial, federal and regional governments around the world. Non-profit organizations and industry leaders are trying to solve the problem of plastic pollution. For example, ocean conservation combines citizens and organizations around the globe to clean the globe free of the 2030s without plastic and Unilever used 100% recycled packaging by 2025.

Canada joins the movement

Canada introduced the Ocean Plastic Charter at the G7 Summit in 2018, committed nations working in the industry to make all plastic reusable, recyclable or recovered from 2030. This means not sending plastic waste to landfill.

Vancouver is aimed at the city of zero waste in 2040. Despite the fact that since 2008 the city has reduced wastes of landfill by 23 percent, it still has a long way to go.

Ontario also has its sights by development of a sheer economy, which means that as long as possible to use materials. The province's aim is to cut waste to landfills on a landfill by a reduction of 4.5 million tons by reuse and recycling.

In Ontario, a member of the province of Ontario, Kingston and Island member Ian Arthur, introduced a private draft law to Ontario Ontario to use non-plush single-plastics products such as straw, coffee cups and plastic cutlery that eventually ended up in landfills. These plastics do not feed in a circular economy.

Additionally, pupils in Ontario are working on collecting 10,000 signatures on petitions to prohibit the use of plastic for unique prostitution.

Canadians have seen more actions against plastic waste. According to a recent survey, 90% of Canadian population is either very concerned or passive about plastic waste impacts and 82% believe that the government requires more of the reduction of plastic waste.

Bye by plastic waste

Our research and other research found that our plastic beaches and shores of plastic products, our small lakes and our large lakes and arctic ocean and microplastics are represented in our sports fish and drinking water.

Global, regional and local cooperation is essential for achieving these goals. It's time to commit the intention of love using a single plastics.

Individual action works. Stop your need for caffeine using a reusable mug. Water-boiling water and durable bottle. Buy groceries that come in containers that can be reused or recycled. Plan your child's birthday and your workshops without a single use of plastic.

Ten years of positive habits can lead to future where plastic is no longer waste, but as a material that can be used and recycled – our current paradigm shift is more sustainable, which lasts until 2030.
