Table des matières

Plastic pollution is seriously a major and complex environmental concern that we face today. It seems like we live in a world of plastic. When we look at our surroundings, we would notice that nearly all our daily equipment is made of plastic or plastic is used as the main ingredient in them. The unhandled use of plastic and disposal generated from it keeps on growing with the population. 

Today, there is a production of 300 million tones of plastic waste each year that is approximately equal to the entire weight of the human population. Imagine this plastic waste dumps into life-giving water bodies and land. It also contaminates our breathing air and impacts not only our environment but also harms humans, animals, and plants.
