Plastics a real threat


Threat of plastics Plastics are non-biodegradable; hence they cannot be permanently removed. In some cases only they can be recycled. Normally a plastic bag of non-biodegradable nature would take around 2000 years for it be destroyed, till then it would remain as junk. Plastics involves large-scale pollution, releasing potent chemicals such as dioxins, phthalates and toxic metals into our environment; and affecting human, animal, plant and aquatic life. Through out the lifecycle plastics are non-sustainable, environmentally hazardous and disastrous. Plastic is given different qualities through treatment with other terrifying chemicals, all of which can come out of the individual products and into air, Water or something in close proximity to the plastic. Most food we eat is packed in polystyrene trays, which are un-biodegradable. Fragments very tiny in nature are accumulating in rivers, sea and oceans causing havoc among the aquatic species. Some species of turtles are eating these plastic garbage thinking of them as food and there by getting poisoned. If the plastics are burnt, they release harmful chemical gases. Studies have found that phthalates found in plastics such as Clingfilm, vinyl can cross the placenta damaging the sexual development of male children there by causing physical and behavioral problems. Plastics cause asthma, eczema and other allergies due to use in house hold items. Toys used by small children contain plastics and they run the risk of getting poisoned. They are also cause for many cancers, immune problems, and infertility among young people. So we can reduce these problems by carrying cloth bags and baskets along with us while shopping for food and other items. Use unbleached paper bags, which can be recycled. Say “NO” to shopkeepers packing items for sale in plastic bags, insist on a paper bag or carry a cloth bag instead.

please act now to save the planet from his hazardous junk.

    There is highly interested business proposal!
    Finally after period of time
    Planet Resource Recovery, Inc.
    showing for the public their nanotechnology project
    recorded
    under the trade name PetroLuxus.
    It is tomorrow’s
    Green technology is biodegradable,
    nontoxic and nonflammable, and its molecules are so microscopic that it can penetrate virtually any natural or manmade material, and break the bond between those materials and hydrocarbons. PetroLuxus is being utilized to increase production 100 to 500% in marginal oil wells, and is also a silver bullet for property owners, as well as state and federal environmental agencies in the remediation of contaminated soil and water, making it possible for the first time to recover hydrocarbons and precious metals from soil that would otherwise be hauled away and burned to ash.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been
    conducting a little homework on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast because I stumbled upon it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk
    about this topic here on your web page.
