Problems of Plastics use on our island
On the island we use plastic materials in our packaging when were either going grocery shopping, dry cleaning or eating out and other ways. The problem is that plastic has on the environment, it gets in the ocean and pollutes the water and even our lands because, it’s hard for plastic to disintegrate because of the molecules. Plastic is harmful to the environment affecting animal habitats such as pelicans, sea turtles and the fish we consume. Another thing is most of the plastic ends up in landfills, polluting air, environment and health, the dump for example.


The solution to this major problem that the island of St. Maarten is having is that we must ban all single use plastics. After the ban of single use plastics in St. Maarten, fines can be put in to place to ensure that nobody will use single use plastics. A fine of 100NAF will be adequate for every piece of single use plastic that is used.
