Life Cycle of Plastics

Today we live in a world full of plastic. Plastic was made only 60 to 70 years ago, but it has become one of the most popular items in our daily lives, such as packaging.

Another important aspect of plastic is that it is made to be strong and durable, but it is also a negative factor because it is difficult to melt and is harmful to the environment.

Australia, for example, produces about 3 million tonnes of plastic, of which less than 12% is recycled, which is a small amount compared to production. More than 130,000 plastics are thrown into the water.

Not only is it dumped in the water, but it also takes millions of years to dissolve in the soil.
