Thumbs up Help me raise n-million followers for this

It is a grim realization that the plastic wrappers and bottles carelessly thrown anywhere is now already a worldwide issue as a big contribution to the deadly pollution of both land and seas. Plastic outlive its users, non-biodegradable and synthetic as it is. They accumulate in dumpsites and landfills. Being lightweight, they go with the wind to clog drainage and waterways. During rainy days, they go with the flood to the seas where they disintegrate into tiny particles called microplastics which marine animals mistake for food, causing many of them to be sick and to die. Burning them is not a welcome solution and this action is now prohibited in many countries due to its ill-effects on the ozone layer and is hazardous to health. Various programs have been launched to reduce plastic waste like the implementation of the 3Rs, where it is encouraged to make the most out of the plastics we use.
This is now a global effort focused towards the total elimination of the single-use plastics like drinking straws, plastic bags, drinking bottles and the like. Waste management programs are geared at attaining zero waste. But the ways to reduce plastic use must be a dedicated effort of every individual. Waste segregation must start with the users. The success of this program lies in the ability of every individual to say a big NO to a single-use plastic item. This habit must be inculcated in each person starting from childhood by the parents, the school, the Church and the local government units. As one saying goes, “old habits die hard” so also is said in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.”
This article is written as a little contribution in rising up awareness on this major concern in which each of us must decide to be an integral part. Our team has come up with 20 simple and practical ways to reduce plastic waste as green Christians and we encourage our readers to follow the links found in this article to our recommendations. Business heads will be forced to innovate and manufacture eco-friendly materials if the single-use plastics they produced are no longer selling. Let us put our hearts into this and our hands in action for our future generations. Live long, Planet Earth!

20 practical ways in waste management

Reducing plastic waste is now a worldwide concern but it must start as a learned habit of children. This means parents and guardians play a vital role in stimulating waste management consciousness at home. This is a very relevant topic that must become a household concern.
