Now-a-days technology is evolving day by day,thus the use of plastic will also increase exponentially due to many requirements.As our world develops,so does the use of plastics.Each of us uses plastic for daily needs,professional needs etc..,but do you know how many years it takes for a single plastic cover to decompose?
It takes upto 400-1000 years to decompose.
With this single thing you can know how dangerous plastic is to the earth.
In a sense,the risks outweigh the benefits of using plastic.plastic does not decompose in the ground and lowering the underground water levels,which is very harmful to the livelihood.
A research shows that the world uses more than 500 billion plastic bags every year and that is 150 for each personon earth.
A study reveals ,for some years the number of plastic material in the sea will be higher than the number of fishes.
And there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic waste floating on and in the seas and oceans ,it will cause serious damage to the aquatic life and eventually to the human life also.
and more than 1 million plastic material throwing into the dustbin every minute.
If this continuous loke this, our one and only blue planet could be damaged.
So we must follow the 3R principle
Everyone should say ‘no’ to plastic and if possible government should ban on using plastic…..
PLASTIC:FROM WASTE TO WEALTH
Instead of discarding the plastic waste that we use,we should use it for some other helpful purposes as well as to reduce pollution caused by waste plastic.By collecting all the plastic waste and sending it to the nearby waste processing plant,we can convert it into fuel for vehicles as well as gas and electricity.Plastic can be converted to oil by pyrolysis processes,in the process waste plastic material is heated to high temperature(550-650 degree celsius) and pressure,after that water breaks down waste plastic and converts it into oil.
Waste plastic can be used as a modifier in manufacturing cement.
Based on the research in MIT in 2017,revealed that the plastic can be used to make a new concrete and estimated upto 20% stronger than regular concrete and the researchers hope that the waste plastic could be used to build strong buildings in future.
“Progress is impossible without change,and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything”. -a saying by an Irish playwright George Bernand Shaw.
So all we have to do atleast is give the used plastic to the scavengers,who takes the waste plastic to the waste processing plants.
MY WASTE is MY RESPONSIBILITY
Everyone should be responsible in managing their waste material whether it is plastic or other waste.
Garbage should be thrown only in the dust-bins after it has been used.
Instead of discarding waste after using,use it for another use by physical modifications.
Encouraging glassware and stainless steel products,which can be infinitely recycled,instead of plastic, to protect our environment and our nature and our planet.
By not using single using items such as paper towels/cups/plates
Only using reusable things
Not to use plastic ,it clogs in water ways and it causes damage to aquatic life and it alsobresults in climate change ,so we should be aware of this.
SAGREGATION AT SOURCE
Waste is divided into 3 types
We should seperate our household wastes or industrial wastes ,if not seperated it leads to mixing of wastes and our surroundings will be contaminated and causes diseases.
The hazardeous wastes are also sources of dioxins,furons and other carcinogenic substsnces.
” A healthy ecology is the basis for a healthy economy”- by mother theresa
So we should keep our surroundings clean to protect ourselves from the harmful diseases..
So everyone should reduce the use of plastic and reuse and recycle the resources and products.
