Due to the negative effects caused from plastic it will always play a role in our environment. One hundred different chemicals have been created after the 1950s to the current day. Something people do not realize is that throwing a plastic wrapper on the ground will end up in a birds stomach, burning plastic in a fire will end up in the air we breathe, and recycling plastic will end up back in our homes. The author states, “I don’t even shop anymore. Anything I need will just float
A Case Study on Polluter’s Dilemma I. Background/Point of View On a small plastic manufacturing, Jonica Gunson works as an environmental compliance manager. The company where she is working with is now facing a serious situation that needs to have a fast and decisive decision, decision whether to invest or not to invest money on new technology that will help decrease or as possible eliminate the level of toxic in the water which is flowing from the back of the factory up to lake. Though the company is compliant with the levels of emissions set by the Environmental Management board, the manager sees that environmental procedures for this specific toxic are sheathing behind logical evidence, particularly that there is a protest from a certain scientist that is publish in the newspaper.
Our beautiful state of Florida is one the richest states when it comes to the diversity of ecosystems. Especially when it comes to our aquatic life such as freshwater and saltwater ecosystems. The state of Florida is one of the states that its water supply is gathered from many different rivers, streams, and springs throughout the whole entire state. All of the aquatic ecosystems are connected in some sort of way. No matter the running water below the surface, the ground water, and or the water on the surface all help our drinkable water supplies, every single industry present in our state, help keep wildlife habitats thriving, improve our agricultural success within our communities.
Leonard chooses to narrow down this epidemic problem down to one: plastic water bottles. Leonard’s argument to steer away from plastic water bottles is legitimate through her rhetorical strategies of comparing and contrasting as well as her presenting of the cause and effect of these water bottles. The implication of these strategies throughout her work not only explains the damaging consequences of plastic water bottles, but also exposes the hidden reality that big businesses spend big money to desperately hide. Though Leonard’s piece may not go over well with many narrow-minded doubters, it is through hope that it may persuade the mind of one person to stay clear of the planet-killing
Synthetic Sea delves deeper into the environmental burden that plastic is placing on the oceans. It shows the effects on not only the oceans, but on animal life as well. (2) Tamara explains why she feels that tap water is superior to bottled. Some of her reasoning for this is that bottled water regulation enforcement is the job of only one person who also possesses additional responsibilities. The evidence also found that bottled water is no cleaner than tap water when tested.
One of the products which has become the most popular in the last century is plastic. Today, plastic is found in most of the items we own or use, everything from toys to kitchenware even automobiles. Unfortunately, plastics have a side effect that few people consider in their day to day routines. Al l plastic contains chemicals, either inherent to the creation of the plastic, or as a biproduct of the manufacturing. These chemicals in plastic can adversely affect the human body, specifically the endocrine
Everyday people buy plastic things from the cafeteria, from plastic containers, lids on cups, and things as small as straws, and like 50% of plastic used it will be thrown away after one use. However, do you ever stop and think, what happens to the plastic? If you’re thinking that it just magically goes away you 're wrong. It will most likely end up in a landfill somewhere or in the ocean, and as you may think that your actions do not impact the world, think again. Everyone in the world has at least used one piece of plastic, adding to the problem of plastic pollution and helping certifying the terrifying statisticc that acooording to the 2018 Earth day video, “by 2050 there will more plastic in the ocean than fish”, which almost is impossible to think of.
Imagine what happens if we keep on polluting our planet? What happens to our future generation? Since plastic takes years to biodegrade, if we keep polluting our environment with plastic, then our future generation will suffer from the environment around them. It also means that plastic and other trash will continue polluting the ocean, which can cause thousands of sea animals to go extinct, providing us with less source of food. Not only sea animals, but animals all over the world might extinct or become endangered because of pollution.
This means that 25 to 40 percent of the bottled water is not any different from the tap water only that it has been exposed to or has a high concentration of the chemicals used to manufacture the packaging plastics. Due to the pathetically primitive regulation of the bottled water, the manufacturers are not keen to inform the consumers of the contaminants that are present in their water. According to Warburton (1993), consumers are likely to drink bottled water containing contaminants such as E.coli, asbestos, giardia, bromate and many other industrial chemicals and pathogens. Arnold & Larsen (2006) indicate that ten water brands in the US had thirty-eight
According to a Biological Diversity website (https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/campaigns/ocean_plastics/), the author states that “Thousands of seabirds and sea turtles, seals and other marine mammals are killed each year after ingesting plastic.” People keep littering and that littering is killing precious marine life. The level of
Drinking Water Is the Way to Go Specific Purpose: To show to my audience the importance of water to our body and to encourage them to drink water more often. Central Idea: Many people may take drinking water for granted, but keeping hydrated can have a huge impact on overall health. Despite how crucial it is that people drink enough water, a significant amount of people may be failing to drink recommended levels of fluids each day. I.
Ocean polluting has big impact on human’s health too. As those chemicals are ingested by the animals, it is not good for humans. Because we are at the end of the food chain, we consume contaminated fish and mammals. We might consume much more toxic chemicals than the sea animals. There are different types of ways that plastic is dangerous for humans.
Plastic pollution in the ocean Introduction Rachel L. Carson said in her book “Water, soil, and the earth´s green mantle of plants make up the world that supports the animal life of the earth” (63). In other words, our planet was always a place which was dominated by nature and it had essential relations between plants and other plants and between plants and other animals (Carson, 1962). Since the modern human started to conquer the world a lot of things have changed and technology has taken over. My essay is about a quite new but very big problem which affects our wonderful planet; it is about plastic in the ocean.
Although we have all heard the rumors and comments about the harmful effects of water bottles, most of us have never really made it a priority to understand the actual health risks of drinking it. We have also brushed off the horrific facts of what it actually does to our planet regardless of the endless amount of television commercials that are trying to grab our attention. It is widely ignored and believed to just be another meaningless hoax, just as Donald Trump believes that Al Gore is a Chinese
The reason plastic is used in many products is because it can withstand up to tons of pressure per cm3, is cheap, is durable, and finally, there is no worry for discoloring. But these days, plastic is becoming a major problem the world has to deal with. Plastic is thrown into the ocean, and it is breaking down into very small pieces, and killing marine life, as they mistake those pieces to their prey. As a matter of fact, nearly all plastics are recyclable, but it 's the recycling companies ' machines that refuse to recycle that kind of plastic(eartheasy.com). I. Plastic, what have you done?
