Plastic Waste Issues Addressed by Consumer Reports

A September 8, 2021 Consumer Reports story that appears in the October 2021 issue, titled “The Big Problem With Plastic “… reveals where most of the plastic you throw away really ends up and explains what to do to limit its environmental harm … If you’re like most people, you probably assume that when you toss plastic into the recycling bin it will be processed and turned into something new. The truth is that only a fraction of plastic is actually recycled … there is very little financial incentive to recycle …” – The remainder of the story addresses, incineration, microplastics, plastic types, plastic waste exports, traditional (mechanical) recycling, advanced (chemical) recycling, consumer actions, extended producer responsibility (EPR) and is too detailed and complex to be properly summarized here #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #Sustainability #Recycling
