Plastic: Regarded as a very useful mean to store, carry and used as preferable. From cans, containers, bags to many extremes plastic are having an inexorable use. We are much satisfied by the easy carriage and the dispose of the same. “Easy to use, Easily available, Easy to dispose.”
The thing we are not aware of or maybe the worst, being aware still don’t bother is that the after use of plastic could be and is creating a lot of instability in the natural environment.
The instabilities aggregately affecting the lives of the land. And to that we are taking few steps forward for effective use and disposal of plastic products.
A scheme has been introduced regarding the dispose return of plastic, glass bottles and aluminum cans. This was committed by the Scottish government and Nicola Ferguson Sturgeon, the current First Minister of Scotland and leader of the Scottish National Party.
The scheme was planned in such a way that shoppers will pay a deposit of ten or twenty pence per container, which will be refunded when they return the container after use.
The Scottish government wisely executed their to cut down on plastic waste after all these wastes are those which are responsible for the land to get polluted relating to life threatening problems further.
An enquiry has been made by the Zero Waste Scotland into the impact that the scheme could have made progressive by making comprehensive comparison of other systems operated around the world. The enquiry found that the scheme could save up to £7 million per year on litter collection and disposal.
Sources say that Catherine Gemmel, of the Marine Conservation Society, told Sky News: “Unfortunately, over the last few years, we have seen a big increase across our beaches on bottles, cans and on glass as well.”
She later added, “This is why we think a deposit return system will have huge impact on decreasing the amount that we’re finding on our beaches.”
Not only in Scotland these schemes are already running in a range of European countries, as well as parts of the US, Canada and Australia.
This is a start up for a huge progress. Such a nature friendly scheme should be adopted by the maximum government to reduce the after use deadly effects of plastic.
