    What should we do to pressure people and companies to stop using so much plastic waste in manufacturing, and once the products are complete are they properly recyclable and not plastic or any kind of not decompose able waste?

    That’s a good question. Companies do this because it’s cheap and because they’re allowed to. I think we should be putting more pressure on governments to regulate it.

      Yes, but how should we put a ton of pressure on the governments, because even though strikes 

      work most of the time, we need something to work 100% of the time!

    What plastic things can you think of that you have replaced in your house? Listing some might give other people some ideas.

    Pressuring companies to change their behavior may require educating the public on the negative aspects of disposable plastics and the benefits of replacing plastics with biodegradable materials. Companies will be more motivated to change and adapt when profits drop. We need to make biodegradables more appealing.
