Plastic pandemic

The plastic pandemic has triggered of Barkat’s exploration of the plastic waste problem and its outcomes. The research has shown our self created catastrophe observed on beaches around the globe, oceans filling up with particles of plastic waste and the wild life suffocating and disappearing because of our own doing. Ocean currents transfer plastic waste from one continent to another irrelevant to national borders, countries or territories. Nature is stronger than human behaviour. If global discussion about this matter does not take place, the human species will suffocate themselves and our planet. What is required is a discussion with no self preferences, no economic dominance and seeing nature as an equal to the human species.
