A plastic is a material that can change its shape. It is very useful because it can be coloured, shaped, melted, rolled, squashed into sheets. We can say, It is a synthetic material made from a wide range of organic polymers such as polyethylene, PVC, nylon, etc.that can be molded into shape while soft, and then set into a rigid or slightly elastic form. The value of the use of Plastic in our day to day life is very crucial. The process of making plastic is usually quite complicated. Most of the materials that are called plastic are polymers. Polymers are long chains of atoms bonded to each other. Plastic are hygienic and it is not poison to our bodies, so all are use it. But it is very deleterious for human health, for the environment (water, soil, air etc.) for animals & birds etc. Plastic is harmful because it is ‘Non-Biodegradable’.
When thrown on land it makes the soil less fertile. When thrown in water it chokes our ponds, rivers and oceans and harms the sea life. If animals eat plastic, it gets stuck in their tummy and makes them sick. Toxic chemicals leach out of plastic and are found in the blood and tissue of nearly all of us. Exposure to them is linked to cancer, birth defects, impaired immunity, endocrine disruption and other ailments. As plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to break down, once an animal dies and decays after ingesting plastic, the plastic is then freed back into the marine environment to carry on killing other wildlife. We need awareness to protect the world from the deleterious effect of plastics. For that we can organised conference through worldwide.
