The Hazards of Plastic
The pollution of plastics to the ocean is actually far more serious and urgent than we think. A total of 3.2 billion tons of plastics are produced every year in the world (of course, this is public data, and the possibility of undisclosed data is higher), including 50 billion plastics. Disposable plastic bags...
And of these produced plastics, more than 8 million metric tons of waste plastics are thrown into the sea...
For example, every year, these plastic wastes cause the death of at least one million seabirds and countless marine life.
Now you can find a lot of seabirds trapped in plastic by doing a random search, and many of them died after eating too much plastic because of the accumulation of too much plastic waste in their stomachs.
Not only birds, but many medium and large fish have countless plastics in their bodies
In order for these creatures to continue to live on this beautiful planet, we should take good care of them and protect this sea.
We can start by carrying our own water cups whenever we go out, which can reduce the use of disposable plastic cups and plastic bottles. We can go out with environmentally friendly shopping bags instead of free plastic bags, and bring our own tableware. Straws are not only hygienic, but also reduce disposable tableware. use. Eat less takeout, eat healthier and make less.
