Why is plastic bad? 英会話・英語 アミック


You can find a vending machine on nearly every street corner in Japan. These vending machines sell all sorts of refreshing beverages and some even sell soup! But…what do you do after you’ve bought and consumed your drink? Trash cans aren’t quite as easy to find to throw your garbage away. You might feel tempted to leave your plastic bottle on the sidewalk and simply walk away, but that action can have dire consequences for our environment!

According to an article on National Geographic, “[m]ass production of plastics, which began just six decades ago, has accelerated so rapidly that it has created 8.3 billion metric tons—most of it in disposable products that end up as trash.” Wow! Did you know that 91% of the world’s plastic doesn’t get recycled? Plastic ends up in landfills and even in the ocean! It has a devastating effect on wildlife. Scientists have predicted that by 2050, the ocean will have more plastic waste than fish. It’s up to us to help keep our home planet free of pollutants.
