We all know that plastics are really affecting our society not only in our barangay/municipality but all over  the world. The plastics are really affecting our environment through its pollution from the accumulated wastes. There are so many kinds of plastics that are everywhere, specifically, on the streets, floating on the bodies of water and in different areas in our places. Plastics also cause diseases and sickness in some people in the area. Plastics are also not biodegradable and years to dispose. Plastics affect the people but also the animals, its so sad to see our animals being killed by the plastics. Through plastics, we people and the animals are suffering from it. To avoid suffering from plastics we should use some alternative for us not to use the plastics, examples are; instead of using plastics straws, try to buy those metal straws that are affordable. Also instead of using a plastics cup in buying drinks, we should bring our own tumbler to use. These are the few examples to reduce plastics and to help our mother nature recover. 

As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the amount of garbage that people produce. On-the-go lifestyles require easily disposable products, such as soda cans or bottles of water, but the accumulation of these products has led to increasing amounts of plastic pollution around the world. As plastic is composed of major toxic pollutants, it has the potential to cause great harm to the environment in the form of air, water and land pollution.

Put simply, plastic pollution is when plastic has gathered in an area and has begun to negatively impact the natural environment and create problems for plants, wildlife and even human population. Often this includes killing plant life and posing dangers to local animals. Plastic is an incredibly useful material, but it is also made from toxic compounds known to cause illness, and because it is meant for durability, it is not biodegradable.

 Next time you go for a shopping, don’t forget to carry a paper or cloth bag. Also, try to avoid bringing plastic bags at home and purchasing items with too much of packaging. This way you can help in contributing towards the environment in the form of reducing plastic pollution whose ill effects are irreversible.
