Plastic bags along with a wide variety of other plastic materials cause an immense amount of problems with the health of things in our environment and ourselves as well. These problems can range from animals choking on plastic that isn’t properly recycled, to releasing toxic chemicals that us humans are taking in, deteriorating our health. If thrown outside, the plastic will release toxins into the soil and waterways that enter the food of animals who can be seriously harmed from them. Plastic bags along with all other plastics don’t biodegrade, they only break down into smaller pieces over time, creating even a bigger problem/mess than what was originally, to begin with. Not only this but, many people think that it is okay to burn plastic in order to get rid of it, also creating a huge problem by sending the previously mentioned chemicals into the air, creating poisonous air pollution that is inhaled by humans and animals, negatively affecting their lungs and health once again. We want to aim to stop this enormous problem mainly because it is affecting the health of living creatures throughout the world and rapidly harming our environment.
