Plastic accumulation in the environment of synthetic plastic products to the point where they create problems for wildlife and their habitats as well as for human pollutions. The plastic population is most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where the garbage collection system is often developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has a problem collecting discarded plastic.
Plastic is a polymeric material, a material whose molecules are very large, resembling long chains made up of a seemingly endless series of interconnected links. Plastic made from fossil fuels is just over a century year old. Plastics revolutionized medicine with life-saving fuel and devices, made space travel possible, lightened cars and jet-saving fuel and pollution, and equipment for clean drinking water. The convenience plastic offer, however, led to throwing away culture that reveals the materials dark side: today single-use plastic accounts for 40% of the plastic produced every year.

This could be accomplished with the improved waste management system and recycling, better product design that takes into account the short life of disposable packaging and reduction in the manufacturing of unnecessary single-use plastic.
