Do you know how polluted is the world now?
Every day we face kinds of pollutions, bad air, polluted water source, killed wild animals, plastic pollution, etc. Actually every kind of pollution affects each other and form a harmful circle to human and the nature. White pollution has been a popular topic for a long time. What can we do to that?
Although only 10% of solid waste on earth is plastic, a great majority of this waste (80%) is ending up on land, shorelines, the ocean surface or seabed. These statistics are quite staggering. The reason for such an increase in plastic production is due to plastic being so inexpensive and durable, and its lifespan being much higher than other materials.
A large percentage of plastic produced each year is used to make disposable packaging items or products which will get permanently thrown out within one year. However, plastics take approximately 1,000 years to biodegrade. They really have an effect on the environment. After plastics are broken down, they release methane which is a very powerful greenhouse gas. Some landfills are taking initiative by installing devices to capture the methane and use it for energy, but most have not incorporated such technology. The methane does not only occur in landfills, the plastics will also be broken down if left on the ground and this takes much more time to break down.
Besides of harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, plastics also release harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil. This could cause serious harm to the species that drink this water.
