Be it a toy or a chair , these plastics are found everywhere . This polymer is found to be a boon to mankind and these plastics are playing a vital role in our daily life .
In olden days man used the things which were made of either wood or from clay or some metals . These things which were used made their work easy and top of that these products are eco- friendly and biodegradable . The main problem in making those eco – friendly products was availability of the raw materials and making these products is a time consuming process . To curb this problem everyone was in search of a material which should not only be cheap but also easily handled . This search for such a material gave rise to new era , the era of plastics . The products made out of plastics are uncountable , be it a clothing product or a furnishing product to many other products . The use of plastics have increased with increasing industrialization and modernization .
We are speaking about uses of plastics but the main question arises what are its demerits . The main disadvantage of plastics is that these polymers are non – biodegradable . These plastics also cause all types of pollution like air , water and soil . Everyday about tons of plastics waste is dumped in landfills , these landfills are becoming breeding for various pests and which inturn are a vectors for many diseases .
Now , the question arises can we overcome this plastic problem and turn into a profitable products ? The answer to this is , yes . The plastic problem has only one solution , that is , Recycling . Through recycling one can convert the waste product into best usable product . This recycling requires lots of creativity , because a good idea can change even a small house into a beautiful resort . For example , consider the plastic waste converted to polyblend , which is now used to lay roads . The best thing to overcome plastic problem is following the three R’s , that is , Reduce – Reuse – Recycle . It’s a saying that , savings make man rich not his earnings , from the reducing the expenses on plastics we can save a lot . The plastic companies are growing enormously but we have to keep one thing in mind is that our Mother Nature is not harmed . These plastic companies may increase a countries GDP , but we have to keep in mind about the our natural wealth also . However , it is the duty of every citizen to do something for the betterment of the country .
As Mahatma Gandhi said , ” Nature has everything for man’s need but not his greed ” . So it’s our duty to protect Mother Nature and always try to conserve the resources and let’s make this world a better place to live . Let’s join our hands together and maintain the delicate balance in nature .
” Plastics , plastic everywhere ,
From the hair to footwear .
Let’s do our best ,
To reduce the waste .
To be happy and healthy ,
Let our nature and country become wealthy . ”
