Following our recent local area walk, when we discovered that most litter is made of plastic, we did some research into the problem of plastic pollution and what we can do about it. As a class, we found out that the best ways to tackle the problem of plastic pollution are:
1) Reduce the amount of plastic we buy, especially single-use plastic, e.g. crisp packets;
2) Re-use plastic containers and bags when possible;
3) Recycle plastic whenever we can.
