World Environment Day 2023: Plastic pollution is a grave problem. It is harming the earth while we sit by and let it. Plastic is a non-biodegradable material that blocks oxygen for plants and aquatic life. If we don't take a step now, 500 years later plastic might be the only thing standing. Fighting against it is our duty to the environment and to our future generations. Small sacrifices like giving up plastic bags and bottles, using the right bin for plastic wrappers, using paper straws etc. are enough for a start. You can make a difference, just believe in your heart that you want to make that difference.
