Environmental Impacts of Plastic Bottles

We buy about 1 million plastic bottles every minute and a staggering 91 percent among them is just thrown away after use, as they can’t be recycled. Wonder what happens then? Plastic, being almost non-biodegradable, remains as it is for eons and slowly, gravely poisons or pollutes every single element in the surrounding environment—air, water, and soil. Plastic is a slow catastrophic agent to everything related to this planet, both living and non-living.

Some of the wide known environmental hazards caused due to plastic, signifying its incomprehensible negative impact on land, water, and air, are—

evn1
  • Plastic waste in landfills leaches harmful elements in soil and in the ground or surface water which affects the soil’s fertility, the water’s usability, and ultimately livestock, plant, and human health.
  • Again, polymerization, manufacturing, and incineration of plastic releases toxic, greenhouse gases including dioxins and furans into the atmosphere.
  • Millions of tons of water and oil are consumed in plastic manufacturing each year.
evn2
  • Dumped plastic waste coagulates in rivers, seas, and oceans (both on and under the surface) that not only pollutes the water, but also renders the environment unfit for marine life of any kind.
  • Microplastics, present in most body care products we use, ultimately wash down into the water bodies and annex the foodchain of marine life, causing irreversible behavioural and health damages.
