Plastic is everywhere! We used it to carry things, wrapped something or sipping your favorite drink because they are lightweight, water-resistant, durable, strong, economical and resistant to corrosion and chemicals. But did you know that plastics are not good for us?
Plastics have a long cycle and can have a negative environmental impact, contribute to health problems and are a choking or breathing hazard.
When waste plastic products end up in rivers, oceans, and landfills, they can contaminant the soil, air and water sources. Similarly, there are some health risks associated with plastics because of the chemical additives used in these products, like bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates. These additives may contribute to health issues, such as asthma and cancer, according to the Ecology Center.
For small children, small plastic pieces or bags may be dangerous because they can pose a choking hazard.
