The ocean and waterways are being heavily polluted with plastic, endangering fish species, and contaminating drinking water. A company, Macreuber has found a way to take ordinary plastic waste, combine it in with asphalt, and build stronger, longer-lasting roads, all while minimizing air pollution, and reducing the amount of money spent on asphalt roads. Chemicals like Carbon dioxide(CO2), Lead(PB), and Nitrogen oxides(NOX), are being released with the traditional construction of traditional asphalt roads. These air pollutants have been proven to lead to acid rain, unhealthy breathing conditions, and global warming. Macreubers roads also have a longer lifespan and less need for repair reducing the cost of roads. If we make a switch to plastic roads, we can minimize air pollution, help reduce the amount of plastic going to oceans and reduce the cost of roads and ultimately taxes.
