What's this about?
By 2050 unless we change how we deal with plastic it is estimated there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish.
If you feel strongly about waste and the environment and enjoy problem solving, there are lots of job opportunities in this area.
For example, you could be working for a company in Swindon that has just come up with a new way to recycle plastic so that over 90% is recycled.
Food production companies and supermarkets also employ scientists to look at alternatives to plastic packaging.
Local councils and charities educate the public to think about their use of plastic and they also organise refuse collection.
