In the article “How Plastic Is Trashing the Planet”(Upfront, Anastasia, 2019) I learned that plastic is valid, it can be in folders, binders, and many other things its also way chapter than other materials like wood, glass .plastic is lightweight, and cheaper but it can be more dangerous than the other materials it causes more damage. plastic has impacted the environment in many ways, the animals are the ones that also get impacted because of plastic. since plastic doesn’t just disappear just like that It ends up getting worst over time. within time plastic starts to break down into tiny little pieces and stay around the environment for about hundreds maybe even thousands of years. sices it has gotten so bad over the years that people started to make some changes to slowly start over the damages plastic has been doing. worldwide there’s about 9.2 billion tons of plastic since 1950. I’ve always wondered where all the missing plastic has gone and most of the part it always ends up in the oceans. by 2050 there’s an estimated amount of 13 billion tons of plastic waste .this is why we should start treatment to better out the earth and make a difference for our environment since animals are getting impacted now and later it could be us.
I think what is happening is that since there wasn’t much technology back in the day they didn’t know much of helpful ways to create better differences for the environment . and now in today’s day, I feel like there aren’t many people taking action to help create a difference for our earth. I think it is very horrible because I do hear many people talking about saving the earth but there are many people that do show action on our earth/ environment. Since we are the best with technology and have better access to many things than it wasn’t years ago I feel like we should start making the earth a better place for us since it’s our home.
