Today the world is grappling with the menace of plastic, which has grown to unimaginable proportions. Yet, when it was discovered, it was a material with endless possibilities, a material which found almost unlimited applications in a wide range of areas. One could almost argue that the story of plastic is a story of technological advances, of increased social mobility and consumerism, which defines the human race presently. However, today, we find ourselves at crossroads. Uninhibited use of plastic has caused it to be one of the most important causes of environmental pollution – right from our landmasses to our rivers, oceans and water bodies. Plastic waste is clogging up the earth at an unprecedented scale. The possibility of a sustainable solution is inevitable. It is only a matter of time before human ingenuity comes up with ways in which plastic can be effectively accumulated through efficient collection mechanisms, legal frameworks and protocols, to open up endless possibilities of reusing in a positive manner.
