Reimagine plastic is an initiative to rethink the way the world disposes of plastic.Plastic has been a useful resource and is used in millions of products. Life without plastic is unimaginable. However, the current problem being faced is the disposal of plastic. Plastic takes approximately 500 – 1000 yrs to degrade. Plastic disposal and recycling is a major issue. The vision behind our program is to rethink and Re-Imagine ways to recycle and dispose plastic.
In the last 50 years the use of plastic has increased 43%. It can be found everywhere, from your household appliances, to contact lenses to windshields and construction. In 1950 the world produced only 2 million tonnes per year. Since then, annual production has increased nearly 200-fold, reaching 381 million tonnes in 2015.
