“Only we humans make waste that nature can’t digest.”
– Charles Moore, oceanographer
There is no doubt that the use of plastic products makes life easier.Things have never been easier to carry and the products are durable.But if we look at the ratio between the advantages and disadvantages of using plastic we can see a clear picture.The side of the weighing machine that is adversely affected is very heavy.
The use of plastics requires the removal of tons of debris and debris.They are not reusable , and if we look around we can find evidence for them.Remember the Meethotamulla dump tragedy ? In modern times , man kind has a craving for comfort.Plastic products meet such requirements as it’s cheap and has easy access now and is a result to be popular among people.We ignore all other adverse effects of such products . No matter how absurd the concept of “No Plastic” may seem irrational or illusory, We must think wisely before using such products.
