Waste Management

“Recycle It All No matter How Small”

Between 2000 and 2017, around the world, one million plastic drinking bottles were purchased every minute, and 5 trillion single-use plastic bags were thrown away each year.

Livelihoods associated with plastic production and weak implementation in managing plastic consumption and disposal have been key issues across the world.

Innovative ideas to tackle this humongous environmental problem of plastic waste management are welcome.
