Plastic Pollution – Impact is Closer than You Think
When it comes to plastic pollution, advancements in research and development are making it easier for everyone to get involved. From easy-to-install filtration solutions to alternative materials and products that don’t put plastics into the environment, many companies, organizations, and groups around the world are actively pursuing pathways toward a plastic-free life.
Addressing the Plastic Crisis
Aside from the advancements in technology and efficacy of filtration, it is essential that people also adopt a change in lifestyle. Better choices can lead to less contribution of plastic to our environment. By paying attention to the fabrics we purchase and the single-use plastics we use, we can make a small impact in this massive problem. And if thousands – and even millions – of people make that same decision, the impact is even greater.
From a solutions-perspective, most homes don’t currently have a filter in place to catch the microfibers from their laundry. So getting a Filtrol installed into every home in America would make an immense impact on the amount of plastic being dumped into our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams.
When it comes to the massive microscopic plastic pollution problem, the impact we can make in our world is closer than you think. Solutions are within reach. On one hand, plastic pollution seems to be past a point of no return. It really is everywhere. The sheer volume of synthetic materials that has invaded our ecosystem has many wondering if we’ll ever know a plastic-free world.
But that’s only one part of the conversation.
At Filtrol, we want to be leading the other side of the conversation: the side that says we can all work together toward a cleaner, plastic-free world. The only way to know that is to start making solutions a part of our every day life. If we can do that, we’ll start to see an impact.
