write a short note on plastic and environment

Dear Student,
Plastics are used to make more products useful in our everyday life such as airbags in automobiles,child safety seats,bicycle helmets and many more.They are in the cell phones,computers,roofs,in packaging that helps to keep food safe and fresh.
Some plastic occur in nature,like tree rubber.Ther are organic plastics which contain carbon,and inorganic plastic which don't.
Now, there are some disadvantages as it causes pollution.Plastic pollution is caused due to the accumulation of the waste in the environment.Plastic is a non-biodegradable substance.It doesn't get disposed off in the soil or water and its effect is worse when burnt.It is thus the challenge to dispose off.It remains in the environment for hundreds of years and causes air,water and land pollution.It is hazardous for the humans,animals as well as plants.Several animals,birds and marine creatures die due ro plastic pollution each year.We see how plastic pollution is running everyone's life on earth.
Plastic plates,bags,spoons,glasses and other materials are readily available in the market.These are economical and easy to use.People prefer using these and throw them away.However,little do they realise that this waste is not disposed off so easily.It continues to remain in the environment and harm us adversely.
Not just plastic utensils and carry bags,furniture and various other things made out of plastic are also used extensively world over.It is high time we must realise the harmful effects of plastic pollution and contribute our bit towards bringing it down for our own better future.We must take major steps to prevent it.We must use alternatives like cloth bags and paper bags instead of plastic bags.If we are purchasing plastic,We must reuse it.We must avoid drinking bottled water which contributes largely to plastic pollution.The government must put a plastic ban on the use of plastic.All this can prevent plastic pollution to a large extent.
