The obsessive use of plastic over the years has caused plastic pollution in our environment. Many plastic products are dumped into the ocean and are painfully effecting sea life. It is a known fact that plastic takes centuries to decompose. This means the billions of plastic products used everyday sits on Earth with no where to go. Producing plastic also creates carbon pollution. As it breaks down it is also releasing greenhouse gases as well. This untimely contributes to global warming, or climate change. A few ways to substitute the use of plastic includes, bringing your own shopping bag, stop buying bottled water, replacing plastic straws with paper straws, and always recycling what you can. Hopefully after reading this you understand how big of an impact to the world it would be if everyone limited their plastic usage. In a recent 2019 study, it was found that over 18 billion pounds of plastic was found in our oceans. In the next decade it could possibly double. Save our environment and limit your plastic usage!
