Plastic should be banned Imagine you walk out of your house and you hear a CRACK! You just stepped on a piece of plastic, plastic is already being littered enough. Imagine like 30 years into the future, there would probably be a lot more plastic and trash outside. Three reason why plastic should be banned is first, plastic is expensive, second plastic can cause health problems, and third, pollution, pollution is horrible for the environment. So keep reading to see about these topics.
These businesses would also earn no money from selling tobacco. This could cause massive unemployment as there is so many companies who sell cigarettes, which have a large labour force. It is therefore important that companies stay, for the workers to survive. Furthermore, banning smoking will encourage people to smoke more at home, that too illegally. This will harm other people in their house.
Such places will often ignore the ban and are unlikely to be caught. Banning smoking in public places would drive many bars, pubs and clubs out of business. Therefore, many of these places will lose income because of the decrease in costumers. This will lead to more poverty because there will be no more money to pay employees in such work places. Lung disease, cancers, and heart disease are just some of the thousands of harmful effects of smoking.
Government need to take serious attention to this issue because there are many cases happen which shows around 435000 people dead from use of tobacco. Even though we cannot eliminate this problem, but all we can do is to reduce the risk. For most of us, we will agree that we absolutely need to ban smoking in the public. There are so many reason that relay on this issue but I would highlight several reason such as the fume from a cigarette can affect the smoker’s health, other people and the effect to society and economies.
The wells the colonists made were risky because of the high chance of salt water intrusion. Also, you have to remember the human waste festering in the water, and even when the tides rush in it doesn’t move the waste out. Therefore, there could be diseases in the water, which could kill the colonists. Remember that the people in the 1600s could not filter water like we can so the colonists (because of the lack of freshwater) had to drink the contaminated water, which could lead to death. This is why I believe that one of the major factors of the colonists deaths is the environment.
The oppressive government, triggered protests to demand a change, which ultimately impacted the quality and quantity of food security. The corruption and violence led people to migrate to developed countries as refugees or asylees for a better and safe future. However, the people who could not leave the country immersed in depression that resulted in addiction of drugs and alcohol, and as a whole increased the crime rate. Since the lack food is still a major issue for an average algerian citizen. Industries involving with waste and pollution are unmonitored due to the corruption, due to not having an agency like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that is responsible of monitoring companies (World Report).
These agencies are not enforcing their regulations, and because of this, the recall process of contaminated food continues to be voluntary. If contaminated foods are not forced to be removed from consumer stores, Americans will be at a greater risk of different illnesses and diseases due to the food industry. In order to ensure that this does not happen, the food industry needs to regulate contaminated foods. “Food-borne illness, [such as food poisoning and others] sicken about one in six Americans every year, leading to 128,000 hospitalization, and an estimated 3,000 deaths” (Kotz 1). The number of
Imagine living in a world where the air is polluted and most people are afraid to step outside their front door, in the near future, this may be reality for Americans. Americans throw out over 200 million tons of garbage a year, yet recycle not nearly as much. Most people do not realize it but recycling is a vital part of America’s society and if Americans do not perform this action, it will backfire on them. People in America are debating whether Americans are recycling enough and correctly. After analyzing the data, one will definitely agree that Americans need to be more educated on recycling due to the fact that most people do not know what happens after they recycle an item, nearly all Americans are recycling incorrectly, and Am To begin, most Americans do not know the recycling process or anything that happens to the item they recycle which is a huge problem that needs to be resolved!
A majority of plastic is made of monomers such as ethylene and propylene which are not biodegradable (Geyer et al. 1). Plastic bags are not biodegradable, indicating that upon their disposal they are either left in landfills or end up along shorelines of the ocean. Americans alone use nearly 100 billion plastic bags a year and contribute significantly to the amount of plastic pollution in the environment. If stores were to impose a 5-cent charge on plastic bags, then there would be a decrease in the amount of them in the environment.
BACKGROUND INFO/CONTEXT Many are oblivious of the dangers of trash; it is one of the most threatening problems we face today. “Once the trash has passed from our hands we lose interest and responsibility in where it is sent” (Harman). Industrialized countries are disposing of their problematic waste by shipping them to third world countries because of the environmental regulations, landfill closings, and citizen opposition to local waste facilities (KR). These hazards arise due to the improper recycling and disposal processes used (Pinto). The UN warned that millions of mobile phones, laptops, tablets, toys, digital cameras, and other electronics are creating a harmful flood of "e-waste" that is being illegally dumped in third world countries
