We can do thousands of things to stop plastic pollution. Some of the simplest things we can do is stop using plastic bags, use our own thermos so that in this way we do not use single-use packages, have our own recyclable cutlery, do not use straws, and try to separate the plastic from other materials so that in this way it can be put to use.

The best form to stop plastic pollution is to think more about how we can affect the earth with plastic
pollution, and make the correct choice of putting the trash and things we don't need in the correct place, because
everyone right now can do whatever he or she wants with the trash and throw it away but in the future we are
going to live the consequences of this incorrect actions.

We all in the world need to think always about what we do, one of the first things, the triple R, Reuse, Recycle and Reduce, with that three we can help us and the marine life, because the plastic pollution involves a lot of things, another one is the global warming, that have been produced by mistakes of humans.

There are many things we can do, many of them are in our daily life, for example, we can stop using plastic bags in our shopping we can use reusable bags for our items. Also another option is stop using plastic or PET bottles. They contaminate a lot, they finish in the ocean and contaminating it. And a good solution for that is to use our thermos. Our goal is to reduce all the waste we have in our world, and have a better future.

Bruno: To contribute to our environment and stop the use of plastic that hurts the oceans, animals and the planet in general, we must apply the method of the three r's:
Recycle, reuse and reduce, in addition to trying no longer to buy plastic things that are not reused or to buy alternatives such as duck bone straws because they are biodegradable and thus we take care of the planet to have a better future.

Plastic is in our day to day and produces very negative effects on the environment. To give you an idea, a plastic bottle can take about 500 years to decompose. It is evident, therefore, that we must avoid the consumption of plastics if we want to take care of our environment.

-Without utilities plastic water bottles.
-Substitute the plastic straws for the metal ones.
-Avoid disposable products.
-Choose products that are packaged with cardboard or glass.

In our everyday lives we can start buying green products that help to increase the economy of companies that sell recycling friendly products, but we can also start from our own house by just start to use more recycling friendly methods in order to waste less, like reusing our bags from the stores or using natural boilers that boil the water with sun heat.

Well, I think that the first step is at home, a good idea is to search in internet basic things to take care our environment, for example, in this case we can take care about what kind of packaging we buy and if those packaging can be reused or recycle, we need to do it.

Do not use plastic water bottles. We can buy stainless steel bottles that conserve water and are reusable.
Substitute the plastic straws for the metal ones. In this way you can use them several times and you will not pollute.
buy with reusable bags. Do not ask for plastic bags at the supermarket, take our bags from home and use them several times.
Avoid buying products wrapped in plastic. For example, legumes or fruits. You can take reusable cloth bags and transport everything there, this way you will not use single-use plastic bags.
Choose products that are packaged with cardboard or glass. For example, if we buy a drink, choose glass bottles or if we buy dishwasher detergent, choose a cardboard box.
Avoid disposable products. It is essential to avoid the use of single-use plastic plates, cutlery and glasses.

To stop plastic pollution I can reduce the use of plastic bottles also the use of water because the water is so important, also we can reduce the use of the cars because all the gas go to the atmosphere and that could break down the ozone layer, also all the plastic like this mark of ziploc is so bad because many of the persons that use it let the bag in the streets and in all the places that are not the trashcan so if we start to use the 3rs we can have a better place.

Never throw plastic into rivers, never consume unnecessary plastic such as water bottles, grocery bags, straws and containers that we do not need. We can replace them with cloth bags, thermos or glass cups etc. We can also invite people to do the same actions

In my opinion, the best way to stop plastic pollution is to start using less plastic bottles, remove gum from your life, limit food in plastic containers and avoid frozen foods.

One of the things we can do every day to stop the plastic pollution would be recycling, talk with the people you know about the importance of reusing things that are made of plastic and we could also go and collect the caps and bottles that you find in the parks and on the streets and take them to a recycling center.

To solve this problem and save our oceans, we need to reduce the use of plastic in our homes, we only have to buy plastic if it is really necesary; also we need to recycle the things that can be recycle and that we don't use.

If we want to stop plastic pollution I think we can start by consuming fewer products that are harmful to the environment like plastic, also we can recycle this kind of product and separate them from the organic ones so they can be processed to be reused.

We can replace and plastics with glass, cardboard, cloth, ceramics reducing their use by materials that take less time to decompose. Apart from this we can throw things in their place instead of doing it on the ground, streets, and rivers that end up in the sea.

We can collect the garbage that is on the street, we can throw our garbage in the bin, use
biodegradable products to avoid contamination, not use plastic bags because they take at
least more than a year to disintegrate, use cutlery and dishes that can reuse, and continue
with the help of marine animals that are trapped by pollution, among other things.

We can reuse bottles of water to drink many times on it instead of throwing it.
Also we need to avoid the plastic burning to reduce the air pollution.
We can recycle the pet bottles and the cans because these materials are collected by companies that recycle and realize new objects.

Pollution is an issue that is very controversial because of all the negative impacts it has on "EVERTHING" it is very sad that people even though they know it is harmful for the environment to do certain things they don't care and commit the action. There are a lot of ways in order to limit of levels of pollution but were aren't saved by this measures.

In the actually, the plastic pollution have increase a lot and many of the people don't care about it. The best way to stop plastics pollution is see what we are doing wrong and how it affects the planet. We do many things that we thing that they do not affect like use bags or straws, but it affect a lot.
