As a result, our ecosystem got damaged, many wildlife harmed and displaced, millions of animals are killed by plastics every year from marine organisms to land-based animals. Based on National Geographic, almost 700 species including the endangered species found dead cause affected by plastics. Mostly they are mistakenly assuming plastics as their foods, while many of them are facing starvation.
Besides affecting animals and wildlife, plastics are actually also having a big deal in our lives. As a human, you might accidentally eat plastics as nowadays we could find microplastics almost everywhere. You would never expect if the mineral water that you used to drink every day were actually containing microplastics, or maybe cereals you used to have every morning too. Creepy isn’t it?
