Peak Plastic is a discussion with the worldwide group about item stewardship. We have hit top plastique on a worldwide scale. Plastic wrapping the earth and choking out our seas. Our creatures are being caught in nets and bolstering plastic to their young since they can’t separate amongst it and nourishment.

Earth overshoot day was August second 2017 and is getting prior consistently.

As a human I feel an immense obligation to the earth and the (ocean animals) that cant shield themselves against our contamination. We have an ethical goal to settle on better decisions for the planet not as purchasers but rather makers, they are the ones hawking the item so the proprietorship lies exclusively with them as the maker.

Item Stewardship and end of life obligation can be dealt with a support to support strategy. It is demonstrated to work and accessible as innovation now, we simply need to put resources into it. I need the sentiments of blame and disgrace as a buyer to be sentiments of affection and satisfaction as I work to alter the way we use our assets.
