Plastic Free July – Rethinking Plastics Use

Zhenyi Lee • 13/07/2021
The history of plastic dates back to 1862. Plastic is proven to be useful in many ways and is still one of human’s best inventions. It has become a normalized part of daily life, that it takes a conscientious effort to try to use less of it. 

More than 40 percent of plastic is used just once, then tossed. 

Each time we bin a piece of plastic, our actions contribute to inherent issues that are often too vast for us to comprehend. It takes an estimated 450 years, to break down a plastic bottle. This means nearly every piece of plastic made, still exists today in some form. 

Demand for plastics is expected to grow over the next few decades, for good reasons which help support safety, convenience, and improved living standards. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, single-use plastics have assumed a conflicting identity - Protect or Pollute. There are no quick fixes, but it helps to know that small changes add up to a big difference. 

Plastic Free July® is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. There isn’t an age too young, or old to start. It is about taking the first baby step and working at a comfortable pace that suits and sustains. 

The People-Plastic-Planet relationship is here to stay, at least for a long while. Let’s rethink our priorities, sensibly and responsibly. The facts are right before our eyes.
