Vartan, Starre. “The Solution to Plastic Pollution Isn't Beach Clean-Ups, It's Companies Taking Responsibility.” MNN, Mother Nature Network, 26 Sept. 2018, www.mnn.com/lifestyle/responsible-living/blogs/stop-those-beach-cleanups-real-solution-our-plastics-problem-companies-taking-responsibility.
This article on " The solution to plastic pollution isn't beach clean-up's, it's companies taking responsibility" points out the effects of our past and future on pollution our planet. Plogging (jogging while picking up liter) has spread drastically  but is it effective? No, only 9 percent of our plastic has ever been recycled. The solution isn't that more Plogging should happen is that companies should take responsibility when they know full-well they are selling something harmful. It gets worse, china is now not taking our plastics to recycle. The reason for that change in policy is because it was mentioned that our plastic was " too polluting" for them to recycle. That's just awful. Plastic use has increased , and is announced to escalate by 40 percent now with more than half a billion people, there has got to be more progress then the rate we're going right now. Companies are making a buck off destroying this planet, and its up to use.
