Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now. Plastic debris represents a chemical pollution in several ways.

They contain compounds that can be chemically transferred to organisms during ingestion.

Some of these molecules are potentially toxic and can accumulate in the body.

Besides, plastic bags also affect the growth of crops, by hindering the process of photosynthesis in agricultural fields.

Plastic pollution is caused by the accumulation of plastic waste in the environment.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

It can be categorized in primary plastics, such as cigarette butts and bottle caps, or secondary plastics, resulting from the degradation of the primary ones.

It can also be defined by its size, from microplastics – small particles (<5 mm) of plastic dispersed in the environment – to macroplastics.

Plastic pollution can take different forms including:


The accumulation of waste

Accumulation of marine litter, fragments or micro particles of plastics and non-biodegradable fishing nets, which continue to trap wildlife and waste

Waste causing the death of animals by ingestion of plastic objects

Arrival of micro plastics and micro beads of plastics from cosmetic and body care products

What are the causes of plastic pollution?

Negligence is the main cause. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of marine litter comes from land.

Worth watching, worth acting. Time is now.

This pollution comes mainly from household waste, which is poorly recycled, dumped in landfills or abandoned in nature.

This waste is carried by the winds, pushed by the rains into sewers, streams, rivers, and finally in the oceans.

Natural disasters like floods are considered as other causes of plastic pollution.

Live life with less plastic.
