Discussion

Do you use a lot of plastic? What do you think we can do, as individuals, to help improve the problem of having too much plastic in our oceans?

I think that now people use really a lot of plastik. To avoid the pollution of the oceans first of all peoople should use less plastic in their lives or use biodegradeble plastik instead. We can also use other materials those are more recycble; for example glass or paper

To help the enviroment we can use paper or biodegradable bags instead of plastic ones. If it's possible it's better to buy drinks in glass bottels because they are esier to recycle. And we can also go on a beach or a field and collect rubbish by ourselfs.

We as individuals can't eliminate plastc but we can reduce using it. We should also start thinking how to reuse plastic instead of dumping it.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of plastic wastes in my daily life. Even though people in my nation know how harmful these materials are, some have to use them for their economic activities.
However, I've just read great two news online.
One is: The three largest toy manufactures are phasing out plastics plastic bit by bit
The other is: 50 new plastic-eating mushrooms have been discovered in past two years
I hope this initiative in the toy industry and the study on mushroom will be successful to save the ocean animals and preserve the environment.

I don´t use a lot of plastic.
But sometimes the companies or stores give you one thing with a lot of platic and that is not good .
