Hi My name is Mehedi hasan sohag from Bangladesh.In our country there are any problem.One of the most problem is plastic pollution.Though Plastics have become a part of our everyday life. To organize a meeting or a workshop, we often use plastic water bottles, plastic plates, plastic forks and spoons, plastic cups for tea or coffee with plastic stir sticks, all carried to the meeting using plastic bags. In Dhaka city, about 14 million pieces of polybags are thrown out every day, often ending up in rivers and sea and for this reason it danger to oceanic life. Bangladesh suffer from floods in urban areas in 1998 and 2008 where polythene and plastic materials were one of the major causes for the obstacle of the extraction systems. A recent report published by Earth Day Network (2018) ranked Bangladesh 10th out of the top 20 plastic polluting countries in the world. Plastic exploit eight percent of the country's waste which is equivalent to 800,000 tonnes, of which around 200,000 tonnes go into the ocean and rivers.
Globally, one million plastic bottles are purchased every minute. A report produced by the World Economic Forum (2018) found that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world's oceans due to 13 million tonnes of plastic ending up in the ocean each year. Most used plastic equipment are non-biodegradable and putrefy at different rates. Managing plastic waste is increasingly becoming a global environmental and economic challenge. Plastic waste is a risk to public health as it enters our food chain, creates congestion problems in drains, causing flooding, ends up in river beds and oceans, depleting ecosystems and marine biodiversity, and makes solid waste management more expensive as landfills and open incineration do not provide an acceptable solution for disposal.
Moreover, the production process for plastic produces greenhouse gas, thus contributing to climate change. It is time for Bangladesh, and the world, to introduce alternatives to plastic.Bangladesh, which became the first country in the world to ban polythene bags in 2002, made a voluntary commitment last year at the Ocean Conference in New York to significantly prevent and reduce marine pollution by 2025. To beat plastic pollution, we need to entirely redesign or rethink our behaviours relating to the consumption and production of plastic. World Environment Day could be a turning point to inspire innovators, producers, consumers, activists, the media and political leaders countrywide to do more than just clean up and recycle existing plastics. It is high time for investment to lead to suitable, environmentally-friendly and affordable alternatives to plastic.
My project is destroy the plastic and convert into disele and try to increase Plastic exploit rate.It aslo environment friendly.If you help I can success on my project.
