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?
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.
