After we buy something from the store, the shopkeeper usually adds things in plastic or polythene coats. When we get home, we throw away our things. Which means it’s about to be the most delusional time of the year, as well. This is because it takes a hundred to five hundred years for a polythene coating to completely dissolve in the soil, and in the long run, it continues to harm the environment.
At present, around 50,000 crore polythene sheets are dumped annually around the world. Half of it is going to the sea in one way or another. As a result, tens of millions of marine birds and one million marine mammals die prematurely each year. Human beings are not free from it either. Eighty-three percent of Americans have evidence of a chemical found in the body of a binol-A (plastic).
Polythene is banned. Its use is considered a punishable offense. Plastic and plastic materials are currently being used to build pyramids of waste all over the world. And not only Earth, but also space is no exception. Its availability is increasing day by day due to its availability. Our state’s twin cities are Cuttack and Bhubaneswar in six cities.
This poses a threat to wildlife as it cannot be recycled compared to use. The sea, which is said to be one of the largest in the world, is now a hotbed of human society. Earlier, seawater was found to be polluted due to plastic water bottles. But now not only plastic bottles, but also every broken piece of plastic, the very small micro-plastics of the factory, are now causing serious pollution problems.
According to a detailed analysis by the National Institute of Oceanography in Goa, pollution caused by plastic materials will cause serious problems in the coming days.
“It simply came to our notice then. It is one of the 10 major obstacles to the survival of the human race.
Plastic fragments affect the marine life cycle. Fish, whales, seals, sea turtles, plstic bags, bottles and other items in the food search are eaten. This interferes with their digestion.
In addition, landfills at the bottom of the ocean affect the availability of natural food. According to the American Journal of Science, 285 million tons of plastic waste is dumped every year in coastal countries. Of that, 12.6 million tonnes are directly mixed with the sea.
According to data released by the Washington DC in 2015, an average of 10-20 million tons of plastic enters the sea every year. According to the latest estimates, 5.25 trillion plastic bags are currently in the sea. As a result, an estimated $ 13 billion worth of marine environment is being destroyed each year.
The board said. As a result, 7 million tonnes of plastic waste is generated in India every year. According to a recent survey by the University of Georgia, India ranks eighth in terms of plstic waste management. The use of plastic products has created a crisis in India. An average of one Indian uses 8 kilograms of polythene every year.
China ranks first in this order. In China, a person uses polythene three times more than Indians. In coastal India, an average of 7% of waste is not properly managed. One plastic bag stays the same for 1,000 years. Even if it is mixed with the soil, it can produce toxins. In some cases, it is also a cause of cancer, with an average of 7% plastic recycling in India. That means more than half of it is being dumped.
In such cases, the government should tighten the rules on plastic use. It’s time to dump her and move on.
