No, an organism has been found/created that eats plastic. We should use more biodegradable products and in the future, technology should improve to the point where we don't use plastics for the above mentioned things.
There should be a way to burn these disposable products, we shouldn’t ban them, but rather have them burned through fire. Wait, I think some could be flammable, like REAL flammable. I don’t know, but we need to get rid of them somehow, but banning them isn’t a good option. This could create protest.
No, single-use plastics are very useful for people with certain disabilities, and banning most products on the market will not encourage manufacturers to switch to biodegradable options. Most ocean plastic comes from fishing and manufacturing waste, not consumer products.
