Today, plastic waste has become a major environmental concern. While on one hand, industries are looking at plastic as more flexible, convenient, and cost-efficient material for products, on the other hand, plastic products and packaging have been creating environmental hazards around the world. According to UN Environment, 1 million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute around the world and 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used worldwide every year. Interestingly, around half of all plastic produced in the world is designed to be used only once and then thrown away, which most of the time end up in landfills or pollute our water resources.
At the rate that we are moving ahead, it is believed that our oceans will be flooded with more plastic than fish by 2050. Hence, it is a wake-up call for all of us to introspect, reimagine and act towards embracing recycling as An Idea Whose Time Has Come. The future is of reducing, recycle and reuse.
Businesses and countries are working towards finding ways to become more sustainable and greener.

It is a defining time for sustainable development and circular economy.
