HOW TO COMBAT PLASTIC POLLUTION.
Firstly, what does plastic pollution even mean? This term refers to the accumulation of plastic around the world, that has not been recycled but has gathered in a particular area and is having a negative impact on the natural environment. Plastic can create a vast array of problems due to its toxic constituent parts. The things that make it so useful to humans are also harmful to the environment, as it's made for durability and is not biodegradable.
WHO IS IMPACTED?
It's most detrimental to plants, animals and sea-life. Whether it's large plastic objects such as milk and water bottles, and plastic bags that animals often get trapped in, or smaller types of plastic, such as glitter and micro-beads, plastic has a detrimental effect on the food chain.
