Try to guess whatthe following images are…..
What is this?
1 million of plastic cups trashed every six              hours in commercial flights.
What is this?
60,000 plastic bags,discarded every 5 seconds.
What is this?
2 million plastic bottles,dumped every 5 minutes.
What else?????
Wait.... There’s more…..

REUSETo use an item againafter it has been used.
Use reusable cloth bags!

  2. 2. What is this?
  3. 3. 1 million of plastic cups trashed every six hours in commercial flights.
  4. 4. What is this?
  5. 5. 60,000 plastic bags,discarded every 5 seconds.
  6. 6. What is this?
  7. 7. 2 million plastic bottles,dumped every 5 minutes.
  8. 8. What else?????
  9. 9. Wait.... There’s more…..
  10. 10. PLASTIC??!!
  11. 11. What is plastic?Plastic is anysynthetic or semi-synthetic organicpolymer.
  12. 12. Types of Plastic Products: PLASTIC BAGS PLASTIC COATINGS PLASTIC FURNITURE PLASTIC SHEETS PLASTIC FITTINGS PLASTIC TANKS PLASTIC TOYS PLASTIC BUCKETS PLASTIC SANITARYWARE PLASTIC STATIONERY
  13. 13. Worldwideplasticconsumptionis flagrant….
  14. 14. How long does plastic take to decompose????F.Y.I. Plasticsdo notdecompose!!!!NEVER!
  15. 15. It only breaks down into molecules.Molecules that are harmful to the environment.
  16. 16. Plastics are believed not todecompose but only photo degrade.
  17. 17. Decomposition vs. Photo Degradation Decomposition is “the chemical breakdown of organic matter into itsconstituents by the action of bacteria,” while photo degradation is, “the processby which chemical bonds arebroken down by photons in the sun’s light spectrum.”
  18. 18. How long does plastic photo degrade????
  19. 19. A very long long long time…….In a way that it is being estimated up tohundreds…..thousands of… years.. depends upon its composition..
  20. 20. Types of Plastic:Plastic #1: Polyethyleneterephtalate, also known asPETE or PET. Usually clearin color, the vast majority ofdisposable soda and waterbottles are made of thisplastic. Range from 5 to 10years.
  21. 21. Types of Plastic: Plastic #2: High-density polyethylene, or HDPE. Most milk jugs, detergent bottles, juice bottles, butter tubs, and toiletries bottles are made of HDPE. It takes 100 years depending on the thickness of the plastic used.
  22. 22. Types of Plastic: Plastic #3: Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. It is used to make food wrap, bottles for cooking oil, and the highly common plumbing pipes.
  23. 23. Types of Plastic: Plastic #4: Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is used to make grocery bags, some food wraps, squeezable bottles, and bread bags. 500 years with a conservative average time of 1000 years.
  24. 24. Types of Plastic: Plastic #5: This is polypropylene. Common items produced with it include yogurt cups, medicine bottles, ketchup, syrup bottles, straws and similar wide-necked containers, as well as water bottles with a cloudy finish.
  25. 25. Types of Plastic: Plastic #6: Polystyrene, or Styrofoam, from which disposable containers and packaging are made. Also found in disposable plates and cups. This type of plastic will break down in under 50 years.
  26. 26. Types of Plastic: Plastic #7: Other Types - This includes anything not in codes one through six. Most plastics in this section do not breakdown and are considered permanently, chemically bonded.
  27. 27. EFFECTS OF PLASTIC TO ENVIRONMENT Litter the landscape
  28. 28. EFFECTS OF PLASTIC TO ENVIRONMENTPollutes beaches &oceans.

  36. 36. Why it happen????
  37. 37. Because what we actually do is… Throw plastics everywhere…
  38. 38. And they will end up…Either on the GROUND.. or in WATER..
