Plastic hazards

Plastic is widely used in our day to day life. Starting from a pen to a polythene bag, all are forms of plastic. Though convenient in our day to day use, it has posed an alarming threat to the environment.
To destroy plastic, we can either recycle or burn it. If we burn plastic, it emits harmful chemical gases. These gases pollute our environment. Plastic bags also damage our environment. Waste plastic bags are thrown into the sea and rivers. In this way, they pollute and disturb the ecosystem of marine life. The only solution to this plastic hazard is to take preventive measures. We should only use recyclable plastic bags, not throw plastic here and there, and the most important thing is that we should reduce the use of plastic bags wherever possible. The government also needs to implement the relevant law to stop the production, marketing and use of plastic bags. Campaigns should also be waged to make people aware of the use of alternatives of plastics bags, such as jute and paper bags.
