“In 2025nearly 20 times the 8 million metric tons estimate – 100 bags of plastic per foot of coastline in the world! “
“Mission Impossible are the only ones which succeed.”
INDIA’S SITUATION WITH PLASTIC.
- 8 million metric tons of plastic ended up in our oceans, and it’s estimated that by 2025 it will be nearly 20 times
- 100,000 marine animals and around 1 million seabirds die each year because of plastic pollution.
- Plastic is made to be strong and durable, so it can take a long time to break down.
- Plastic is versatile, lightweight, flexible, moisture resistant, strong, and relatively inexpensive.
- For more than 50 years, global production and consumption of plastics have continued to rise. An estimated 299 million tons of plastics were produced in 2013, representing a 4 percent increase over 2012, and confirming and upward trend over the past years
- India’s contribution to plastic waste that is dumped into the Indian ocean every year is a massive 60%
- Plastic waste constitutes on average 9-10% of the local waste collected daily.
- It is common across India to find sewers and drainage systems clogged by single use plastic bags which cause severe cases of malaria and dengue due to the increased population of mosquitoes that breed on these flooded sewers.
- Their non-biodegradability threatens permanent effects on the rural ecology: plastics have been shown to severely contaminate land and water bodies as they attract and sustain other pollutants.
- The current disposal methods reinforce environmental harm: for their disposal, plastics are either burned indiscriminately in landfills or used as fuel cakes; both practices release toxic pollutants into the immediate environment and have the potential to cause grave illnesses
