As the usage of plastic has increased over the last few decades, global pollution has become uncontrollable. Authorities have had a problem in regulating plastic use and ensuring that it does not endanger the ecosystem.

Plastics Pose a Threat:

Natural Resource Degradation

  • Plastic can harm the ecosystem by degrading natural resources such as water, soil, and air. This will have a negative impact on our future generations.

Enter the Food Chain

  • Plastic in the food chain of animals can create major health problems. This is especially harmful if human food supplies are interfered with.

Prevent Sunlight:

  • Plastic can float on the surface of oceans and seas, preventing sunlight from reaching the water’s surface. Corals, for example, will be affected.

Suffocate Water Flow:

  • Nutrient mixing and dissemination are aided by ocean currents. This procedure cannot take place properly in the presence of plastics.

There Is A Need For A Plastic Pollution Pact.

  • Legal standing
  • The pact on reducing plastic pollution will give any plastic pollution prevention law legal status and offer countries’ enforcement agencies an advantage.
  • Scientific research A framework for developing scientific research on plastic management and measures to limit use will be established under the treaty.
  • Taking on more responsibilities
  • To reduce plastic pollution, user responsibility will be expanded, and other stakeholders such as manufacturers and the government will be invited to participate.

As a result, plastic pollution is a major global issue. A viable alternative to plastic, as well as severe punishment, can serve as a deterrent to its usage.
