Indonesia faces a plastic pollution crisis
Indonesia generates 7 million tonnes of plastic waste per year, and is growing by 5% annually.
All for nothing
Anti plastic movements have started since 1970s, but nothing has changed.
And here is the worst part.
Recently, microplastic particles are found in the placenta of an unborn baby for the first time.
The effect of mismanaged recycling has taken a toll directly on human.
According to researchers, these chemicals in the form of plastics can cause long-term damage in the baby’s developing immune system.
It is just a matter of time we will face the consequences.
