Let all take a trip to the rivers, ocean or sea and we would see piles of waste materials, mostly plastic materials that are being washed off shore simply because people dump refuses into them directly or indirectly- let not play holy, we know despite the publication and awareness that people shouldn't dump their refuses in the sea or rivers in order to prevent pollution, most still engage in such. Even if we don't do such, the ways we leave our refuses or garbages/trash unattended to and dispose of them contribute to them still finding a way to pollute the rivers and Oceans. One of the everyday most used material globally is the Plastic and in all its forms - Plastics being a major concern of pollution and directly a major pollutant of the land and sea and indirectly, a source of pollution to the atmosphere/air.

Plastics are hydrocarbons, they are materials composed mainly of the constituents of Hydrogen and Carbon and those who are familiar with Organic Chemistry would know a thing or two about Hydrocarbons. When hydrocarbons are burnt, they tend to release Carbon Monoxide into the atmosphere which is a major pollutant of the atmosphere and is gotten from the incomplete combustion of Carbon or combustion of Carbon in a limited supply of air - Plastics hereby contains Carbon ... When we burn Plastics, we create Carbon Monoxide and pollute the air.

Plastics and all its forms from the Containers to the Storage tanks to the Packing plates to the Plastic or Polyethylene bags to even the Drinking straws are very essential materials in our every day-to-day activities of life as we use them in storing, packing, holding commodities and materials. Fizzy drinks and water are stored and distributed all over the world in plastic containers, apart from the kinds of the aluminium cans and glass bottles.

It won't be exaggerating to say that Plastics make the World move as we can't do without them and they have really made a stand and impact in our lives industrially and commercially. Another important factor to notice from Plastics is its durability to last the test of time as they can be used for years and still maintain their purpose- this trait being both a blessing and a curse to the plastic nature. In addition to its durability, Plastics are very flexible in use and application, easily convertible for use and much more. I won't be able to touch all the importance of Plastics and I know there are so much more to be said but all in all, Plastics are a revolutionary material to man kind but why do I think if they should be banned from use ?

I would be talking extensively to finish my point on this topic in my next article. Bear with me and stay tuned...

... Good Morning to you all, thanks for reading and for your time. Have A Nice Day Ahead .

I agree that plastics are very revolutionary but the amount of damage they do to our Earth is much more than that. Almost in every commercial things plastics are used food, packing, storing almost in everything. Slowly we need to cut their usage or use plant based plastics or their alternatives surely they aren't that effective but are ok as an alternative and can do their job also in later years this will eat Earth not humans.

If only plastics disintegrate within a short period of time. Then it would be the ideal material. But they don't, and are s major pollutants of water bodies worldwide
