Reject Petroleum Based Single-use Plastics
There are several reasons why single-use plastics are considered harmful:
1). Pollution and Litter: Single-use plastics contribute significantly to pollution and litter. These items take hundreds of years to break down in the environment.
2). Climate Change: Its production requires the use of fossil fuels, which contribute to climate change through the release of greenhouse gases.
3). Waste Management: It can be difficult and costly to manage as waste. Many of these items do not biodegrade and must be sent to landfills or incinerated, which can have negative environmental impacts.
4). Human Health: Some types of single-use plastics contain chemicals that can leach into food or drinks, posing a health risk.
Biodegradable plastics have a number of positive impacts and benefits:
1). Reducing Waste: Biodegradable plastics can break down naturally in the environment, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, and polluting the environment.
2). Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Its production can generate fewer greenhouse gas, which can help to combat climate change.
3). Conserving Resources: They are often made from renewable resources, such as plants or agricultural waste, which can further help to reduce the demand and our dependence for finite fossil fuel resources.
4). Improving Soil Health: Compostable bioplastics can enrich soil as they become compost, helping to improve soil health and fertility.
