Plastics are so common that they have come to pollute to the blood of the smallest babies. A variety of toxic chemicals fired by different types of plastics have it detected in the blood and tissues of most people, is in human milk and in the bodies of newborns. Many of these chemicals interfere with hormonal processes, but has not yet been established exactly what effect this has on the growth, maturation and human reproduction.
All existing manufactured plastic follows. The plastic takes a thousand years to degrade and become part of nature. Meanwhile, he becomes more smaller but equally harmful and pieces. Even the plastic already cremated remains in the air as toxic particles.
Plastic particles attract more toxic compounds and are ingested by organisms of different sizes, from plankton and insects to birds, finally we eat when we eat meat or seafood.
Recycling is always good. But not all materials are as easy to recycle. Unlike other recyclable materials, recycling of plastics is inefficient and costly; therefore, do not substantially reduce the production of new plastic. Plastic waste reaching landfills are burned (resulting in air pollution) that are recycled and are converted into products of lower quality and durability.
A product of plastic causes contamination at all stages of their existence
Although it is amazing the amount of plastic and polystyrene foam that accumulates in the sea, accumulations of this type are also found in deserts and open spaces where the wind deposited the trash.
Plates, cups and cutlery, straws, water and soda bottles, and plastic bags are the largest source of non-biodegradable waste.
