Our earth has already witnessed many mass destructions of species due to natural calamities. Scientists are now alerting us that we are moving towards another extinction because we humans are exploiting our biodiversity. Conservation of biodiversity has become the need of the hour. Plastic waste has become one of the major threats to biodiversity. Plastics are non-degradable substances that will not degrade naturally and will affect our nature’s stability. The majority of plastic waste is thrown carelessly into our water bodies and it results in water pollution. The marine animals and fishes will consume these plastic waste and it leads to their death.

Inhaling of these poisonous gas will make humans prone to several diseases like lung infections, cancer, etc. Plastic is also very dangerous to our soil as these will remain in our Earth for many years and will destroy the fertility of our soil.
