The issue of plastic being omnipresent in our daily lives that will eventually find its way into nature that have risks on ecosystems and on our own health is a song we have all heard. Solutions like recycling programs and awareness campaigns have circulated, but the problem seems to only get worse in Germany.
In reality, recycling is a facade
only about 15 percent of what we put in our yellow plastic recycling bin is actually recycled. Much of the other plastic waste is shipped off to impoverished nations in Asia and Africa to deal with. The plastic is accumulating in nature. A study showed that there were 893000 particles in the river rhein per square kilometer. You wonder how is this possible? Plastic hides in so many products, especially beauty products, like shampoos, shower gels and creams that we wash down our drain and end up in our rivers and eventually in our oceans. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch has grown to 5 times the size of Germany and soon there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. So it’s time to get serious with a real approach!
