Kanchan Shilla, Komal and Binoo Sehgal
Plastic is a strong, anti-moist, flexible, lightweight, durable, quite low cost and greatly useful material. These versatile qualities of plastic direct us to over consumption of plastic products in day to day life which leads to assemblage of remarkable plastic debris. The over consumption and production of plastic products is a great concern of disposal and deterioration of plastic waste because of sluggish and resistible quality of plastic towards natural biodegradation processes, it requires approximate 450 to 800 years to fully decompose to a plastic product. Thus, the plastic products are supposed to be everlasting and plastic is made up of toxic elements therefore agglomeration of plastic waste becomes a great concern of an undeniable problem which causes great harm to the air, land and marine life on the Earth. From destruction and disruption of different environmental components to transformation of animal hormones, the exponential augmentation of plastics debris is threatening the survival of the Earth.
