Pollution shouldn't be political; it should be something we all work together to manage, no matter what side we take on issues at large. Garbage is as old as humanity, and we've been struggling to dispose of it since. In fact, the first recorded landfill is over 5,000 years old, discovered in the Cretan capital, Knossos where they buried their garbage in giant pits layered with soil.
A child's idea of doing the right thing with rubbish is to put it in the bin, but where does it all get to? At the end of the day, plastics be us, but how do we do it?which do not decompose still end up in the environment. It's just that instead of being messily spread out across the countryside for all to see, we collect it in one place, which will inevitably turn into heaven for archaeologists in a few thousand years.
