    It might, but their are a few crucial aspects. One of which is recycling, if more people start recycling plastic waste it would soon make the process cheaper than to manufacture new ones. Other aspect is demand, which is still higher in the US than other countries. For example if people would stop using plastic bags and use environmentally friendly packaging the demand and the output of plastic producing companies decrees. Also, sad fact, that in the US it is still a considered more sustainable to extract oil, ship it, refine it, turn it into plastic and sell it than to wash a spoon, fork, knife or plate.
