This can be a massive step towards saving the environment and life on earth. The effects of Plastic affects everyone and every living thing. The chemicals from plastic bottles can contaminate our water sources, animals could ingest it poisoning them and humans too if we eat the infected.
More and more factories are creating plastic bottles causing greenhouse gases and increasing the risk of skin cancer by depleting the ozone layer.
Plastic bottles are not biodegradable and take around several hundred years to decompose ( and is completely unhealthy for the environment ) unlike bioplastic where it takes 3-6 months. Plastic is chemically made and is not safe for the environment.
Plastic bottles can be found in the oceans and break down into micro beads (small balls of plastic), which fish ingest and it poisons them, then it's introduced plastic to the human food chain.
(Attached video) There is a eco-friendly solution called bioplastic, which is made up from Sugarcane, vegetable fats, starch, and straw, etc! And it also can replaces fossil fuels –saving the ozone layer. It's a win-win situation, we have fuel and non toxic plastic that doesn't kill the environment.
If we start the change now we might be able to help the environment restore so that future generations get to see the wonders of the world; not a dead, air-poisoned planet – with extreme unforgiving weather due to global warming, caused in part by the chemical factory process of plastic bottles.
