This photo depicts heart-shaped littered plastic bottle embedded in the clay slopes, on a hillside in Ghajn Tuffieha. It is a symbol of one of the major threats to our planet. The main concern is the accumulation of plastic in the environment and the time it takes to degrade. Once it is broken down, the smaller pieces which are called microplastics enter the diet of living organisms such as birds and fish, and eventually, our own food. As a solution, we must REDUCE the amount of plastic we use. An example of this is the banning of single use plastic. Plastic waste generated must be disposed of responsibly ideally for recycling rather than landfilling.
