It is difficult to dispose plastic products It is dangerous when plastic waste goes to the landfills and even more dangerous when it goes into the water bodies Unlike wood and paper we cannot even dispose it of by burning it This is because burning plastic produces harmful gases that are dangerous for the environment and life on earth Plastic thus causes air water and land pollution
No matter how hard we try we cannot do away with the plastic products completely However we can certainly restrict our plastic usage A number of plastic products such as plastic bags containers glasses bottles etc can easily be replaced by ecofriendly alternatives such as cloth/ paper bags steel utensils and so on
