Yes. Recycling of plastic waste is a good solution.

Pollution caused by different plastic wastes is a major contributor towards the degrading environmental conditions all over the globe. Some of the direct problems caused by plastic waste are:

  • Pollution
    • Land Pollution
    • Ocean and Sea Pollution
  • Endangerment to Flaura and Fauna

Recycling of plastic enables the reuse of this plastic waste which otherwise would have been

  • Dumped in Landfills or soils
  • Dumped in water bodies such as lakes, ponds, seas or oceans

Other benefits of recycling plastic waste are

  • Reduces demand of virgin plastic products
  • Reduces energy consumption
  • Reduces consumption of petroleum by-products
  • Reduces carbon footprint
