The pandemic made us realize that humans do not own the planet, and the long lockdowns worldwide gave the planet a chance to heal itself. Pollution levels dropped, and even the depleting ozone layer started returning back to normalcy. Moreover, the hole in the ozone layer due to the unrestricted release of toxic gases in the atmosphere, also started diminishing.
Though the planet healed during the period of lockdown, most of the countries have started gaining back their normalcy, and human activities are coming back to normal. The planet healed but still, a lot has to be done. A number of studies suggest that in the coming years the water levels all around the globe are going to rise due to global warming that melts the snow-clad mountain peaks, glaciers, and other ice bodies. Global warming is a corollary of pollution, and all the resultant natural mishaps that will happen because of melting ice bodies will be due to unrestricted environmentally unsustainable human activities.
What is the elixir?
Each one of us has to do our best to reduce the factors contributing to pollution, and circumventing or majorly reducing the use of plastic is one such step for starting our journey towards environmental preservation. Plastic takes around 100 years to decompose, and some varieties of plastic take as much as 500 years to break down. Thus, switching to eco-friendly daily supplies such as Biodegradable Trash Bags and other eco-friendly alternates is a step that will make a large difference. The lesser the amount of plastic used, the less will be the pollution resulting due to burning or breaking down of plastic.
Plastic is hazardous not only because of the span of years it needs to decompose, but also for the dangerous toxins it releases at the time of decomposing that pollutes the ecosystems around, and sips in the ground, and also pollutes the groundwater down there.
Thus, switch to biodegradable Heavy Duty Trash Bags and other environmentally sustainable alternates as soon as possible.
