Presentation on Plastic By Kanishka and Nishtha from Hillwoods academy school, Delhi

  1. 1. Introduction  Plastic is the general common term for a wide range of synthetic or semi synthetic organic solid materials suitable for the manufacture of industrial products. Plastics are typically polymers of high molecular weight, and may contain other substances to improve performance and/or reduce costs.  Plastic is one of the few new chemical materials which pose environmental problem. Polyethylene, poly vinyl chloride, polystyrene is largely used in the manufacture of plastics.

  3. 3. Plastic’s Adverse Effects On Our Environment 1. Plastics Pollute Oceans And Beaches - Garbage has been discarded into the oceans for as long as humans have sailed the seven seas or lived on seashores or near waterways flowing into the sea. Since the 1940s, plastic use has increased dramatically, resulting in a huge quantity of nearly indestructible, lightweight material floating in the oceans and eventually deposited on beaches worldwide
  4. 4. Plastic Bags Litter The Landscape  Once they are used, most plastic bags go into landfill, or rubbish tips. Each year more and more plastic bags are ending up littering the environment. Once they become litter, plastic bags find their way into our waterways, parks, beaches, and streets. And, if they are burned, they infuse the air with toxic fumes.
  5. 5. Plastic Bags Kill Animals  About 100,000 animals such as dolphins, turtles whales, penguins are killed every year due to plastic bags. Many animals ingest plastic bags, mistaking them for food, and therefore die. And worse, the ingested plastic bag remains intact even after the death and decomposition of the animal. Thus, it lies around in the landscape where another victim may ingest it.
  6. 6. Once plastic is produced, the harm is done once and for all. Plastic defies any kind of attempt at disposal – be it through recycling, burning, or land filling. When you recycle a hazard, you create a hazard. Recycling of plastic is associated with skin and respiratory problems, resulting from exposure to and inhalation of toxic fumes, especially hydrocarbons and residues released during the process.
  7. 7. Measures 1. Single-use plastic bags have become such a ubiquitous way of life that it seems as if we simply cannot do without them. However, if we have the will, we can start reducing their use in small ways. 2. A tote bag can make a good substitute for holding the shopping. You can keep the bag with the cahier, and then put your purchases into it instead of the usual plastic bag.
  8. 8. 3. Recycling the plastic bags you already have is another good idea. These can come into use for various purposes, like holding your garbage, instead of purchasing new ones. 4. While governments may be working out ways to lessen the impact of plastic bags on the environment, however, each of us should shoulder some of the responsibility for this problem, which ultimately harms us.
