Plastic Pollution is a dilemma that directly impacts our environment as well as our future drastically. If we continue to ignore this growing issue, then we end up killing our planet and any small chance we have of survival. Plastic is found everywhere throughout every environment. It litters the world and causes the environment to suffer greatly, specifically because of the fact that it cannot decompose, and instead lies around for all of eternity, finding its way into the habitats of wildlife as well as littering our oceans. This is a problem because it kills our ecosystems and life on earth. We cannot survive without the plants, animals, and water that plastic is slowly killing; by poisoning our water, destroying our ecosystem and nature, and killing the animals who accidentally ingest plastic. The environment is affected, animals lose their habitats and can't eat plants or what they need to because it's polluted. Lastly, chemicals used to produce plastic are toxic to us and considering that many of the animals that we eat accidentally ingest this plastic, we end up ingesting it as well and damaging our health.

DOW Chemical Company is one of the world's leading manufacturers in plastic. Midland, Michigan-based Dow Chemical is the world's No. 2 in revenue with $56.7 billion in 2012. Dow's more than $14 billion in plastics revenue comes from polypropylene, polyethylene, and resins used for a variety of applications. Dow Chemical also claims to be the leading supplier of polyethylene. This company creates a huge amount of waste for our planet, and this needs to be stopped.
