A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of plastic pollution.
Wikipedia defines the term as follows: “Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth’s environment that adversely affects humans, wildlife and their habitat.”
Simply put, plastic pollution involves the excessive use of plastic and its poor disposal thereof affecting living beings and the surrounding environment negatively. It severely disrupts the landscape, sometimes irreversibly so.
Degradation of almost every environmental variety, be it land or water or soil, is majorly caused by plastic pollution.
To avoid plastic pollution and its dire consequences, post its usage, plastic ought to be disposed of properly. Because plastic is non-biodegradable, it will not decompose with the soil for thousands of years and will continue to affect the quality of the land, water, or soil present for years to come!
Segregate plastic and dispose of it in the right dustbin to avoid plastic pollution.
