Plastic Pollution

Eliminating Plastic Waste from Design

We must alter the way we create, utilize, and recycle plastics in Arab region because the plastic pollution challenge cannot be solved solely through recycling and reduction. If we do not act now, by 2050 the oceans could contain more plastic than fish.

Plastic Has a Cyclic Economy in Arab Region 

The circular economy takes into account every step of a product’s journey, both before and after it reaches the Arab consumer. 

This strategy is not only critical for reducing plastic pollution, but it also has significant economic, social, and environmental benefits. A circular economy by 2040 has the potential to:

  • limit the amount of plastic that enters our waterways by 80% on a yearly basis
  • 25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • produce annual savings of USD 200 billion
  • 700,000 net new employment will be created.

The circular economy takes into account every step of a product’s journey, both before and after it reaches the consumer

3 Acts are Required to Build an Arab Circular Economy for Plastic: 

 

1-Eliminate

Remove all problematic and superfluous plastic objects from your home.

2-Innovate

Develop new ways to make the plastics we do need reusable, recyclable, or biodegradable.

3-Circulate

Keep all of the plastic things we use in circulation to keep them out of the environment and out of the economy.

From voluntary agreements to a worldwide treaty, we’ve come a long way.

More than 1,000 organizations, including corporations and governments, have joined the Global Commitment and Plastics Pact Network to support this vision and 2025 targets for a circular economy for plastic.

We’ve brought together important stakeholders to rethink and reimagine the future of plastics, starting with packaging, in conjunction with a broad collection of leading firms, cities, philanthropists, governments, academics, students, NGOs, and people.

These initiatives have created the groundwork for broad-based voluntary cooperation, but we must go far further. To drive industry-scale change and eradicate plastic pollution, we need a global, binding approach to magnify present efforts and create a level playing field.
