What is Plastic Pollution?
• Plastic pollution is
the accumulation of
plastic on earth which is
negatively impacting
environment and living
beings. Plastic is non-
biodegradable and takes
approx. 500 to 1000
years to completely
degrade(most of them).
We are inhaling and literally eating plastic. A lot of
plastic wastage is dividing into smaller particles and
are mixing in air and in land. And hence we are
inhaling the plastic particles and eating the plants
that absorbed plastic from land. People should feel
responsible for the plastic waste they are throwing.
Causes of Plastic pollution

• Usage of plastic products in increased multifold, and hence the production of


plastic is rapidly increased.
• There are no cheap alternatives to plastic bags and other plastic products.
Plastic is very inexpensive, and hence is being used by almost everyone.
• There is no proper awareness among public about the ill-effects of plastic
usage.
• Though there are bans on plastic bags, the alternatives are not encouraged
enough.
• There is no responsibility assigned to manufacturers of plastic products and
hence the production of plastic is still high. Many things such as food items,
cosmetic products are all wrapped in plastic because once the products are
sold, there is no responsibility of the plastic wastage on manufacturers.
• Only 21% of the plastic is recycled (till 2017) and all the remaining plastic
Effects of Plastic pollution
• Discarded plastic items are dividing into small particles and we are inhaling
those particles. When the plastic is burned along with other garbage, it
release poisonous chemicals into air which causes severe health problems.
• Most of the plastic waste is mixing in oceans, posing severe problems for
marine life. A lot of ocean animals are dying by eating plastic waste. Fishes
are eating polystyrene (small plastic particles). When we eat these ocean
fishes, we are indirectly eating plastic.
• Plastic waste is polluting land and ground water as well. Plants are
absorbing small plastic particles. Plastic waste is preventing rain water from
seeping into the ground. These products clog drains as well. Bangladesh
witnessed worse floods due to plastic waste and hence imposed ban on
plastic.
• Many animals are dying by eating plastic covers.
• These days everything including food is wrapped in plastic. When these
products are exposed to heat, it releases dangerous chemicals(BPA
(bisphenol-a)
• Poly vinyl chloride & poly carbonates that are present in plastic waste
causes skin diseases, cancers etc.
What needs to be done

• Alternatives to plastic bags and covers should be encouraged.


• Awareness programs on ill-effects of plastic should be conducted.
• Plastic waste should be effectively recycled by constructing roads
and houses etc. with the plastic waste.
• We should target at production stage. Supply of plastic items is
too high. Manufacturers should be made responsible for the
waste.
• Imposing responsibility and heavy fines to manufacturers will
force them to look for alternatives to pack their goods, for
example some soaps are now being packed in paper materials
instead of plastic.
• At an individual level, we should reduce plastic usage as much as
