The Damage of Plastic Waste to the Environment

Today, let's talk about what plastic waste does in damaging our environment. It affects both land and aquatic life in different ways possible. Do you think environmental protection is important?


塑胶真的破坏了我们的地球环境。人类尚未发现降解塑胶的方法,连可分解的塑胶袋其实只分解成小小颗粒的大小,最终到海洋中被野生动物吞食到肚子中。


塑胶袋及相似的塑料常常被海洋生物误认为食物。塑胶袋,对它们来看很像漂浮在海中的水母。这些动物不能消化塑胶;吞咽之后就会出现消化的问题。有些动物也被塑胶缭绕在海洋中,无法逃脱。以后,它们生长的形状非常怪异并惹人怜惜,你上网查看就能深刻体会,塑胶对海洋生物造成的灾害。


地球上的植物族群也受到塑胶袋的影响。塑胶袋不仅污染海洋也还污染了土地。塑胶袋对植物没有什么好处,而且因为塑胶难以降解,植物的树根更难找得到土壤的养分。因此,被塑胶袋污染的土壤不适合植物生长。


因为塑胶袋的重量很轻,塑胶袋也能通过风或水漂浮到遥远的地方去。它们随处可见,污染我们的风景,堵塞了我们的水沟,也会破坏人体的健康。与塑胶袋的使用平均寿命十二分钟相比,让这塑胶袋损害我们的地球,就是不值得。

English translation:

Plastic really destroys our global environment. Humans have not found a way to degrade plastics. Even the decomposable plastic bags are only broken down into small particles and eventually swallowed into the stomach by wild animals.

Plastic bags and similar plastics are often mistaken for food by marine life. Plastic bags look like jellyfish floating in the sea for them. These animals cannot digest the plastic; there will be a digestive problem after swallowing. Some animals are also entangled by plastic in the ocean and cannot escape. In the future, the appearance of their growth will be very weird and pitiful. You can deeply feel, the disasters that plastics cause to marine life, simply checking through the Internet.

The plants of the earth are also affected by plastic bags. Plastic bags do not only pollute the ocean but also pollutes the land. Plastic bags do not bring any benefit to plants, and because plastics are difficult to degrade, it is more difficult for plant roots to find nutrients in the soil. Therefore, soil contaminated with plastic bags is not suitable for plant growth.

Because the weight of the plastic bag is very light, the plastic bag can also float to the faraway place by wind or water. They can be seen everywhere, polluting our landscape, blocking our ditch, and destroying the health of the human body. Compared with the average lifespan of plastic bags, it is simply unworthy to let this plastic bag damage our planet.
