Global Warming, Save the Planet - Plastics

Plastics are made from resources that are not environmental friendly, such as petroleum. Although some plastics are recyclable, many are not. It is also very slow to break down to its natural form. We should always opt for glas rather than plastics.

Plastic bags litter the landscape. When they are being use, it will end up either into on the roads or rubbish bins. Every year, the use of plastics keep on increasing. As plastics are hard to destroy, this can actually contribute badly to our nature. If they are burn, plastics would pollute the air with toxic fumes. Decomposition of a plastics bags take about 1000 years!

Plastic can also cause health problem and is a bigger danger than global warming. Some resources says that plastics is related to cancer disease. There are few types of plastics: Polyvinyl Chloride, Phthalates, Polycarbonate with Bisphenol, Polystyrene, Polyethelyne, Polyester, Urea-formaldehyde, Polyurethane Foam, Acrylic and lastly Tetrafluoro-ethelyne.

All these plastics types can harm our body even up to the level of death. I'm not going to go deep into each and every type of plastics effect on our health. In summary, plastics can cause several health issues such as:
Cancer
Eye and respiratory-tract irritation and acute skin rashes
Obesity, diabetes and hyperactivity
Asthma
Birth defects, harmonal changes, declining sperm counts, infertility
Irritates the eye, nose, causing breathing difficulties.

Let's save our mother Earth by consuming less plastics! Whenever we are thinking of using plastics, we should think whether it is appropriate or not. Imagine if 1% of the whole world rejects plastics, we can actually turn this world to be a better place!

If plastics consumption increases day by day, our beach will soon turn into a big rubbish place. This beautiful scenery will only remains as photos.
