It indicate that plastic in the ocean is one of the greatest hazards. According to National Geographic plastic pollution contributes to the ‘Great Pacific Garbage Patch’.

 +** Open Questions :**
 +
 +
 +**1. Broadening the human perspective of time is one of the main points of this book. Does making people to act in a broader time scale avoid them to enjoy life ?**
 +
 +
 +I believe that government can help significantly to address this issue, as they have a better perspective of the time scale in broader view. In a way that citizen do not feel the difference and at the same time they manage the expenditure of resources. ​
 +
 +
 +
 +**2. Technology has made us to do our daily tasks faster, consequently made people more indolent. Does finding a solution through technology make people not put enough effort again ? How technology can help it ?**
 +
 +
 +I believe that this can be done only gradually, since this is also considered as changing human behavior. At this moment if the technology used try to change the habits or ask the user to put more effort then it will be rejected in short time. 
 +
 +
 +**3. As third world countries want to develop, usually this development is with environmental damages. As developed counties had used their portion of environment , how they can help them to pass this period in a more Eco-friendly way ?**
 +
 +
 +
 +By sharing the knowledge and experience, developed countries can help them not to take the wrong approach that they already had taken previously.
 +
 +
 +
 +**4.How bottom-up approach can help sustainability issue to be addressed?​**
 +
 +
 +
 +Bottom-up approach is an efficient method to tackle big problems, however, this approach takes long time to see the results. This method can be done by small organization as even small steps can bring awareness and encourage other people to engage to address this issue.
