Short Essay On Plastic Pollution
Macrodebris are often found in ocean waters, and can have a serious impact on the native organisms. Even after they have been abandoned, they continue to trap marine organisms and other plastic debris.
The Ocean Conservancy reported that China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam dump more plastic in the sea than all other countries combined.
Both mega- and macro-plastics are found in packaging, footwear, and other domestic items that have been washed off of ships or discarded in landfills.
Fishing-related items are more likely to be found around remote islands.
Plastics themselves contribute to approximately 10% of discarded waste.
Many kinds of plastics exist depending on their precursors and the method for their polymerization.
