require the presence of revenue losses for producers nor does it require variations of the public’s life quality, a circular business model is, as a matter of fact, as profitable as linear models while giving people access to enjoy similar productions ( Geissdoerfer et al., 2017). A major argument in favor of the circular economy approach is because it is an effective way to reduce ocean plastic waste, at the same time it can keep the world environmentally and economically sustainable by focusing on areas such as design thinking, product life extension and recycling.

SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE OCEAN PLASTIC WASTE There are various kinds of sources of marine debris, while most of them are generated by ships. Nearly half the debris collected from the Great Pacific garbage patch consisted of discarded fishing nets. ( Chen, & Liu, 2013 ). As a result, efforts should be focused on debris reduction strategies. Research by Dalton (2018 ) found a clean-up contraption which consists of 40ft pipes. It is made of plastic that will be fitted together to form a long, snaking tube (Dalton, 2018). When cleaning the plastic garbage, the machine will float on the ocean's surface in an arc since they are filled with air. Its nylon screens form a giant floating dustpan to catch the plastic rubbish that gathers together when moved by the currents. The screens, however, will be unable to trap micro-sized plastics (Dalton, 2018). Figure 2. Clean-up machine (The Ocean Cleanup Foundation) Dalton, J. (2018, April 23).

SOLUTIONS TO REDUCE OCEAN PLASTIC WASTE By using this tool, the volume of plastic waste can be reduced. Nevertheless, not only this new technology is needed, but also people especially fishers should raise the awareness of the marine environment. Fishers also need to develop a recycling practice. Recommendation From my point of view, the first solution is better than the second one. A circular economy is very efficient and effective to reduce plastic garbage. Plastic waste could be significantly reduced if recycling is completed very well. However, it is a little hard for people to conduct. If people do not have the awareness of protecting the environment, this process could not be valid. As a result, the government could make some policies in order to regulate people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
