￼origin of plastic:
In the beginning of 21st century plastic has developed a lot. It is widely used for many purposes today. Plastic is used to cover many of the items we buy or use. When we dispose of the waste plastic, we unknowingly pollute the environment. Plastics are used because they are very cheap, but plastics have become very big pollution. Plastic does not decompose easily. So the amount of plastic waste is gradually increasing.
The surveys in coastal areas and beaches in different continents reveal the fact that there is an increase of 190 percent in the plastic pollution in the last ten years. More than 90% of articles thrown on the beach side contain plastic. Plastic rubbish is found in many regions in the world. In urban areas the plastic comes from the packaging materials. In the rural beaches comes from ships and fishing equipments. The plastic rubbish affects the life of the animals in the sea. In fact the careless disposal of plastic and the excessive use of plastic are serious problems. Due to excessive use of plastic, the ground water level may go down further; we will have to face water crisis in future.
Remedies for plastic waste:
We should set an example to others by avoiding plastic pollution. For example, A plastic sack manufacture in Bangalore has managed to find the ideal solution to the ever-increasing problem of accumulating plastic waste. Ahmed khan, aged 57 years old, plastic sacks for 20 years. He realised that plastic waste was a real problem. In 1998 polyblend, a fine powder of recycled modified plastic, was developed then by his company. This mixture is mixed with bitumen that is used to lay roads. Ahmed khan proved that blend of polyblend and bitumen, helped to increase road life by a factor of three. Khan’s innovation like polyblend, we might still avoid being smothered by plastic waste. In the same way plastics are useful in many cause for humans.
By avoiding the excessive use of plastics, and usage of plastic in healthy way, we can contribute our share to the pollution-free environment. If the environment is free from polluted air, water, food, rubbish and polluted plastic all people can lead a healthy life
