Plastic is considered to be synthetic or semi-synthetic in nature. While it is extremely useful, excessive use of plastic and its poor disposal thereof affects 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, 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!
