As Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau states in his address involving the ban of single use plastics in Canada by 2021, "How do you explain dead whales washing up on beaches across the world, their stomachs filled with plastic bags?" (National Geographic Society). When will the manufacturers of these plastics be held accountable for their actions leading to massive pollution in Earth's ocean and wildlife? Plastic seems to be a part of daily human life in means of consumption, ease of access and transportation - but should not have to be dealt with in the lives of animal wildlife which results in deaths of many ecosystems and individual organisms. We, as humans, have introduced a monumental environmental problem with plastics in our daily lives, and if the right course of actions are taken by the leaders of our nations, we could potentially reverse issues of global pollution and damage to ecosystems across the globe. A controversial issue regarding single use plastics, is in the given name itself. A plastic material in the form of a wrapper or rings of plastic belonging to a pack of soda cans, is created for the sole purpose to be destroyed by the consumer - leading to a stockpile of human pollution into the planets oceans and wildlife in form of debris. If leaders enforce or boycott single use plastics and encourage individuals to seek reusable more sustainable or Eco-friendly actions excluding single use plastics with emphasis of reusing bottles, containers, ditching plastic straws for metal and monumental catastrophes from the abandonment of enormous fishing nets in oceans, then perhaps humans can unify a solution to this entirely man made age of pollution. Perhaps we won't have to try and continue to explain the phenomenon of ocean mammals dying off due to man made materials with no rightful ways of dealing with the waste.
