Did you know that every plastic that is being produced in the world still exists still today? Plastic was invented hundreds of years back and every gram of plastic that is being produced can never be degraded in our lifetime. There is no known on natural process of degrade plastic.
In this particular waste management essay, We shall be talking about the plastic waste. the organic and inorganic waste and how it adversely affects our plant and what, as a responsible citizen,we can do tackle this waste management menace.
Waste management is one of the biggest challenge that urban India faces. It is not just India, but the whole world faces the menace of mountains of waste on our planet. Every plastic that the ever been produced on this planet still exist on our seas, oceans and lands. There has been on known natural or artificial technique to degrade plastics which means once the plastic is manufactured there is no way to get rid of that plastic in our lifetime. Scientists and engineers estimate that one gram of plastic takes more than 450 years to be completely degraded which means the plastic that we use today will still be in existence for four generation to come.
Menace of plastic waste is big threat to the existence of our planet. In this particular waste management essay,we shall be concentrating mainly on plastic waste because it is one of the biggest looming threats to our country. There are other waste.
Which can be artificially or naturally degraded but plastic is one such material where scientists have failed to find suitable solution for degradation. The solution to waste management cannot be implemented by the government or officers sitting miles away from your home. As the saying goes.charity begins at home.the solution to waste management should be stored within our home. firstly will disposing of waste. segregation of waste into liquid waste,solid waste, organic waste, inorganic waste and plastic waste should be categorised well. plastic waste should be as much as possible. reused and the organic and inorganic waste. instead of throwing away. can be used as compost in our back yard or in our gardens. while waste management can start at our house.there should be enough awareness and educational programs that the government should conduct to make people aware of the impending threat of plastics in our society.
Waste produced by human beings in a country is thousands of tones every day,The government has to set up recycling plants in every district and every village so that the waste produced will be recycled immediately within the vicinity withot being dumped on the land or water which causes pollution in the ecosystem. without proper recycling and reusing and disposable systems in place Man has been dumping harmful and toxic waste on land and water for many years, without realising the fact that this waste will eventually come back to man through food or through the very air we breathe.
Industries and factories dump certain toxic wastes and oils in oceans, harming the equatic life on the planet. when this aquatic life is consumed by human beings, this will poison the entire food chain on all levels. It is said that harmful chemical such as zinc or lead or tungsten has been penetrated through our food cycle.it is also estimated that people have started to consume plastics through food agriculture food, and this can have catastrophic effects on human health.
- Disposing of plastic and non-biodegradable waste has become a challenge for the globe.
- Segregation of waste into plastic waste, organic waste, inorganic waste and liquid waste is essential.
- Recycling and reusing of materials like plastic bags is one way to reduce waste produced on the earth.
- Proper awareness and educational compaign should be conducted to make people aware of a safe waste disposal system.
Waste management has become one of the leading studies for academicians around the world to invent and discover new techniques to dispose of waste.scintists and engineers are on the verge of creating break through bacteria and viruses which can decompose plastics but as of now. there is no scientific solution to get rid of plastic from the earth organic waste such as vegetables and fruits can be decomposed through composting landfill or any other forms.
I would like to conclude by saying that waste management cannot be done effectively if and every citizen of the country doesn’t take cognizance of the problem. All that the government and authorities can do is create a system but the onus of separating the waste and reuse and recycling lies on the shoulder of every citizen of the country. The international community has to come together and formulate proper laws and policies to prevent the dumping of harmful waste into our ecosystem and we have to prioritise the research and development of find innovative waste disposal solutions. waste management solution should come from an individual level and not just from a government level. We all are the real stakeholders of nature and it is our responsibility to save nature from being polluted and depleted.
