Plastic is everywhere
We all know that plastic pollution is a worldwide issue. Plastic has spread everywhere in the ocean. People eat plastic equivalent to the weight of a credit card every week and ingest 100,000 plastic particles into the body every year. The sources of intake are drinking water, shellfish, beer, and salt. Shanghai produces 8 million tons of garbage every year. 27,000 tons of garbage are generated every day. Precious Plastic China is a company based in Shanghai that focuses on creating awareness about plastic waste, with a unique process. They do workshops with local residents but still find it hard to empower residents to implement a sustainable lifestyle. The two co-founders are foreigners, so it’s hard for them to really target local residents.
