Plastics

First of all what is a "Plastic"?

  • Plastic contains a long chain polymer of hydrocarbon which the bonds between each atom is inert.

Due to its inert properties it tooks millions of year to break down by decomposers.

Therefore it is called non-biodegradable substance.

Obviously "Platics" are every where and you always heard about "Stop Using Platic" or "Plastic is harmful to the environment", therefore it becomes a vague subject that we didn't care that much.

Plastics have huge impacts on the environments. Landfills are full of heaps of plastic mountains. Plastic does not release any toxic gases but they are non-biodegradable so they have to be incinerated so that landfill would not be filled with plastic. Therefore carbon monoxide and other harmful gases are released which causes acid rain ,damage ozone and causes air pollution. Due to acid rain, river would be filled with harmful liquids which may damage aquatic life and tress and animals would die due to in contact with the acid rain. Also people throw away plastic carelessly. It get into oceans, rivers, land, etc... which causes land and water pollution. Not only land and water are polluted but in consequences, marine animals and animals did not know that plastic is un-edible so they would consume it and it can cause their respiratory system to get blocked so they could not breathe and consume food.

Pat Smith which is 70 years old grandma who manage to clean beaches by picking up plastics and rubbish from the beach with the help of community, now she have clean many beaches travelling and cleaning by the average rate of 52 beaches per year.

By getting inspiration, obviously I am telling you to pick up rubbish which you do not need to be ashamed of and you should be proud of.

Everybody could not clean the environment and reduce plastic but individually we could make a small change which can lead to much bigger and bigger change.

Hope One Day Plastics Go Away!
