How Plastic Is Dangerous To Our Environment

“Today we use plastic- A material designed to last forever- For products designed to last minutes”

Plastic is one of the most contagious materials in the world as it cannot be biodegraded. Our lives are the put at the verge of life-threatening diseases by use of this single material. We throw plastic bottles, bag & packaging on a daily basis that are ended up in our rivers & environments hence giving an opportunity for an eruption of new diseases.

So, Have you ever thought of how plastic can ruin our lives?

Plastic – A threat to Wild Life:

This photodegradable material is not only an ultimatum for terrestrial animals but also for aquatic species.  Its exposure or consumption by animals can cause serious problems in the digestive tracts of animals. Moreover, the chemicals used to manufacture the plastic can lead to intestinal disruptions or even breathing difficulties in animals.

A source of spoiling Underground Water:

There exist landfills in almost all countries but its major drawback is that the toxic chemicals from plastic debris are absorbed in underground water. This ultimately pollutes the lakes, rivers or the adjacent water sources in the environment. Similarly, the flow of water is also disrupted that leads to various drainage problems.

Disruption with our Food Chain:

The hazardous plastic is even consumed by the microorganisms thus disrupting their life cycles. The sea animals greatly rely on algae for their sustenance but when the microplastics are introduced in their feed, the whole food chain is destroyed & the humans are undoubtedly the biggest victims.

Source of Toxin Carrier:

Plastic is a source of spreading the toxins everywhere. This destructive material contains toxins like BPA & other flame retardants hence posing a serious threat to pesticides that are vital for some plants. On the other hand, these toxins are absorbed by human bodies in various form that greatly disrupts the hormonal system of humans.

Lastly, the exposure to plastic is decreasing the lifespan of living beings to a great level. We should take serious measures to stop the plastic pollution for the welfare of living beings.

Do something drastic, cut the PLASTIC!
