Discuss the effects of non-biodegradable plastics in the environment


Plastic pollution has become a global phenomenon across the world and even to the most remote locations. Plastic is not biodegradable. It only breaks down into smaller compounds whereby its toxic chemicals ingested by animals, which we have also consumed. Plastic degrades due to solar radiation and oxidation into smaller and smaller pieces, all of which are still plastic polymers, eventually becoming individual molecules of plastic dust. They can also leave behind neurotoxins such as BPA in the organism. It can cause male reproductive failures. So it is very necessary to reuse or conversion of it to protect the environment.
