Causes and reasons for plastic waste
Why do we have to use plastic in packaging containers?
If there’re so many, we should stop using it. Don’t you think we can solve this to use a non-plastic material? You might think so. However, there are reasons why plastic is useful in packaging. That's because plastic has the right qualities for each package. （fromPlastic Recycling Association 8 questions）

Plastic can reduce energy and useless food waste. For example, enabling long-term storage at room temperature, and protecting food items from oxygen, moisture, ultraviolet rays, microorganisms, etc.Knowing this, we thought plastic wasn't necessarily bad. Isn't it important to take advantage of these useful properties of plastics, and reduce wasteful consumption (excessive packaging, disposable products, etc.)?
