Explain your project in details:
I am not an entrepreneur currently. But when I will have enough capital, the 1st thing that I would do is create awareness about plastic waste management and ensure that governments make laws that help in curbing plastic production, its usage and its waste management. The plastic global market creates 300 million tons of plastic annually out of which only 10% is recycled. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped in our oceans every year. We need to pressurize all the governments to ban dumping to plastic in water bodies.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
100,000 marine creatures a year die from plastic entanglement and these are the ones found. Approximately 1 million sea birds also die from plastic. Once there are strict laws established against plastic disposal in oceans, the life under water will flourish. The number of deaths of sea creatures will decrease. This will also increase employment as we would need more people to recycle all the plastic that is created. We also need to make people realize that plastic is not the only option available. Awareness needs to be spread all across the globe.
Sustainability and future plans
Step 1) Demand governments to make strict and punishable laws on plastic production and its recycling reforms along with ban on dumping plastic in water bodies. Step 2 ) Spread awareness among entrepreneurs about plastic recycling. Step 3 ) Spread awareness among global citizens about harmful effects of plastic on sea creatures. Step 4 ) Keep a check on companies whether they are following the laws and maintain positive and negative changes observed after the laws are implied.
