A second life for plastic
10 / 28 / 2019
We believe that, at this point, there is no need to provide any further information on the impact plastics have on the planet. While half the world is really aware of this problem and tries its best to reduce the use of plastic to the minimum, the other half isn´t and as long as a radical change of attitude is not achieved, plastic will continue being present in our lives. On an individual level there are plenty of actions we can carry out to try to control –not avoid– the negative effects. Certainly, the most obvious is to separate the waste we generate at home, recycling to the maximum and placing every single thing in the corresponding trash can; but there are other gestures that, no matter how small, add up.
There is clearly a long way to go before we eliminate plastic or minimize it to the maximum, but in the meantime, we should try to reuse it as much as we can, to avoid using new materials when the planet is full of already used material.
