    Environmental pollution by plastic waste is causing a major issue around the world. In this article, focus was given on the re-use of plastics to minimize or prevent the plastic waste. First, the plastic materials are classified based on the origin, functional characteristics and recycling characteristics. A general overview on the rationale for using plastic and the pollutions caused by the plastic products are provided. Some data related to the production of plastic are presented to give an idea about the scale. Plastic waste management strategies are briefly discussed. Finally, the importance of re-using plastic and how circular economy can play a vital role in re-using plastic materials are discussed.
