Waste management has become one of the leading studies for academicians around the world to invent and discover new techniques to dispose of waste. Scientists and engineers are on the verge of creating breakthrough bacteria and viruses which can decompose plastics but as of now, there is no scientific solution to get rid of plastic from the earth. Organic waste such as vegetables and fruits can be decomposed through composting, landfill or any other forms. But disposing of inorganic waste and plastic waste has been a challenge for human civilization ever since the invention of these materials.
Prioritising research and development to create and form innovative solutions for recycling and reuse of plastic in organic and toxic wastes are important to prevent the impact of of the mountains of waste that we have already produced and dumped it on nature. The international community has to come forward and stop the dumping of toxic waste on our oceans, seas, lands and air. This will eventually come back to us and start poisoning our food cycle, which in a worst-case scenario, can cause millions of deaths across the world.
I would like to conclude by saying that waste management solutions should come from an individual level and not just from a governmental level. We all are the real stakeholders of nature and it is our responsibility to save nature from being polluted and depleted.
