Modern production processes have been increasingly responsible for plastic overproduction for various reasons, not limited to containers and packaging. Said situation has reflected its consequences on human and animal health, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of this, it is imperative to consider the measures taken to reduce plastic contamination and the role of sustainability in plastic production processes. Previous studies and literature about the effects of plastics, the provisional standards, and programs to reduce contamination caused by this material have been analyzed in order to highlight its importance. Green businesses are also proposed as a more efficient solution to the problem of plastic overproduction. Some examples of small green businesses are presented to demonstrate the adoption of sustainable, eco-friendly measures in their business model and that even after some years, said models have proved to be effective by providing revenues and still following the ecological practices such as recycling different kinds of plastics and wastes.
