Is it true that most plastic waste is recycled, so using a lot of plastic is not a problem?

This claim is certainly false, and very far from reality. Just a small percentage of plastic waste is recycled and turned into material for new products. The majority of plastic waste is landfilled, incinerated (burnt) or ends up in the environment. This is one of the reasons why the current level of plastics consumption is so problematic.
