Impact of plastic - RJ Mantra

  1. 1. DESIGN TO CHANGE
  2. 2. <ul><li>Hello, I am E.ANUSH KUMAR of </li></ul><ul><li>R.J.MANTRA ENGLISH SCHOOL, </li></ul><ul><li>VIRUDHUNAGAR. </li></ul><ul><li>I would like to share with you an incident which changed my whole attitude towards the usage of plastics in our daily life. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Last year I visited the Mudumalai Tiger Reserve along with my parents. There I was thrilled to view the wild animals in their natural habitat. </li></ul><ul><li>But I was shocked to see a deer lying dead, because it had eaten plastic bags. </li></ul><ul><li>Later I noticed that the whole forest area was littered with plastic bags and pet bottles which were carelessly thrown away by the tourists. </li></ul>
  4. 6. <ul><li>This sight made me very sad and disheartened. </li></ul><ul><li>All these things happen because of the carelessness of our fellow humans. </li></ul><ul><li>This made me swear that I will be more careful in using plastics in future. </li></ul>
  5. 7. <ul><li>WHAT IS PLASTIC? </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic is a synthetic or semi-synthetic organic solid material. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastics are polymers of high molecular weight. </li></ul><ul><li>Polythene, Polyvinyl chloride, Polystyrene are largely used in manufacture of plastics. </li></ul>
  6. 8. PROBLEM <ul><li>Most of the plastics do not decompose or some of them take at least 15 to 1000 years to degrade. </li></ul><ul><li>The toxins released from them are also a serious threat to our environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Non-degradable plastics accumulate at the rate of 25millions per year which fills up the land. </li></ul>
  7. 10. HOW DO PLASTICS DAMAGE? <ul><li>Plastics thrown on land can enter into drainage lines and choke them. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic wastes fill up the land and prevent seepage of rainwater into earth. </li></ul><ul><li>Plastic wastes dumped into sea can affect marine wildlife. </li></ul>
  8. 11. <ul><li>About 100,000 dolphins, whales and penguins die every year after ingesting the plastic wastes by mistaking them for food. </li></ul><ul><li>Even in the forests, many wild animals die after consuming plastics or getting entangled and strangulated by them. </li></ul><ul><li>Even after the decomposition of the dead animal, the plastic inside its body does not decompose. </li></ul><ul><li>Thus it lies around the landscape where another animal may ingest it. </li></ul>
  9. 14. DESIGN to CHANGE <ul><li>The two best changes we can do are </li></ul><ul><li>* Use less plastics </li></ul><ul><li>* To reuse plastics when possible. </li></ul>
  10. 15. DESIGN to CHANGE <ul><li>Many products that come in plastic bottles are also available in glass bottles or tin cans. </li></ul><ul><li>Use these whenever possible. </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of buying bottled water, buy refillable water bottles. </li></ul><ul><li>Paper, cloth & jute are most preferable substitutes for plastics. </li></ul>
  11. 16. DESIGN to CHANGE <ul><li>Do not forget to carry a cloth bag while going for shopping. </li></ul><ul><li>Start saying a big “NO” to carry bags. </li></ul>
  12. 17. <ul><li>Now I have reduced using plastics in my day to day life. </li></ul><ul><li>Also I never litter anything carelessly. </li></ul><ul><li>I am also spreading this message to my friends and relatives. </li></ul>
  13. 18. <ul><li>I believe that this small effort taken by me will surely bring a big change in future. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Only small drops of water make up a mighty ocean.” </li></ul>
  14. 19. Community Service
  15. 20. Service we do in our school <ul><li>we are newly stared school, in our school we have a community service class. In this hour we are mainly concentrating to eradicate plastic and polythene bags pollution in our surrounding environment. </li></ul>
  16. 21. Thank You
