Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth's environment that adversely affects the wildlife, wildlife habitat and humans. Plastic waste can be found everywhere. From the deepest part of the ocean to the beach, from streets to the home it has covered every place. It is leading cause of pollution as it is non-degradable waste.
Plastic pollution has the potential to poison animals, which can then adversely affect human food supplies. Plastic pollution has taken over the world as even stomach of aquatic animals and sea birds are filled with plastics. Recent news has clearly shown that many animals have died because of indigestion of plastic waste. Not only animals, human beings are also affected by plastic pollution. A 2017 study found that 83% of tap water samples taken around the world contained plastic pollutants. This is a serious matter.
We have to control plastic pollution right now. Strict laws should be made and implemented in this subject and more focus should be given on recycling the plastic. Dumping the plastic waste in the ocean, river and lakes must be stopped and punishment should be given as a consequence. Proper awareness should be spread out.
