We all know how hazardous plastic waste is for our environment. Over 8 million metric tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans each year putting the aquatic ecosystem of the earth in grave danger. There have been cases where plastic ingredients have been found in the stomachs of aquatic animals.
Scientists predict that by 2050 there will be additional plastic by weight in the oceans than fish. To combat the issue, Amazon has initiated a step towards it.
Amazon expanded its revenues by 26% in the first quarter of the year. However, it seems that it has not capitalized on aspects related to benefiting the environment.
To reduce pollution caused by plastic, Amazon has banned the sale of disposable plastic products and those made without degradable plastic in its shops in the United Kingdom, European Kingdom, and Turkey. Though this move has bought in a lot of criticism for the organization, it sticks to its decision.
These three will be the nations where Amazon will start with the limitations. The company's marketable collaborators will be subject to this policy and it will also correlate to all sales, including those of Amazon itself, according to EFE.
