Today it’s impossible to escape plastic in our everyday lives, and plastic is literally in our hands all day long. Coffee in plastic cup, the fruit in plastic packaging, salad in plastic case, yoghurt in plastic cup all together in the plastic bag. We think anyone can relate. All together after 10 minutes becomes plastic trash, which will eventually end up in the landfills, oceans or in the environment. There are many reasons why plastic trash is a problem. Plastic trash has negative impacts on the environment due to material’s durability, since it takes decades for plastic to decompose. Ending up as trash in the oceans it seriously impacts the life of marine animals. On daily basis marine animals die from plastic entanglement and ingestion. The most terrifying fact and yet to become serious problem is that plastic is entering our foodchain and affecting our health.
Raising awareness on plastic pollution and why it’s important to reduce plastic in everyday life is the only way that people will start understanding the impacts of plastic pollution on the environment and our health.
