The Effects of non-biodegradable plastics on the environment


Simon Sampson*

Plastic and its byproducts have long found their application in basically every side of contemporary life-from toys to storage containers, from vehicles to gadgets and substantially more. On account of its light-weight, strength, toughness and capacity to be molded in any structure, it is being widely utilized in electronics, sports and manufacturing enterprises, homes. The items produced using non-biodegradable plastics have added comfort & convenience to daily existence. Be that as it may, plastic wastes do not degrade over time and have a longer-lasting effect on both humans & entire environment in a variety of ways. Their decomposition includes utilization of warmth or fire, which consequently produces heaps of waste, noxious vapor and requires a very long time to deteriorate. Some of the non-biodegradable products include polyethylene, rayon, nylon, lexan, polyester, PVC (Ploy Vinyl Chloride) and carbon fibers.
