What Are The Climate Costs Of Plastic?
Hey, you! Yes, you. Do you love yourself? How much? and do you love your linage with the same intensity? If yes, why do you expose them to the hazardous environment caused by the greedy effects of climate change because of the plastic bag and the tumbler you are holding.

But how exactly does humanity's addiction to plastic contribute to climate change? In this article, I'll explain how plastics act as a catalyst in accelerating climate change, health complications, and food insecurity.

As the world becomes increasingly industrialized, many people have turned their backs on traditional ways of life.

Nature is often viewed as a hindrance to progress, and the environment is sacrificed to pursue more money and convenience.

However, according to climate change experts, humans must collaborate with nature to survive since even unborn babies are exposed to the pangs of climate change caused by the emission of carbon gas from plastics.

According to Queen Elizabeth, an environmental advocate officer of the Arocha Kenya, the human race is in grave danger following the use and discarding of plastics. She emphasizes that the only way to change the narrative is to stop using plastics at all costs.

According to Queen, plastics are non-biodegradable and create greenhouse gas emissions contributing to global warming.

During an interview for this article, Queen elaborated that when exposed to sunlight, plastics break down into more methane and ethylene, which is known to accelerate climate change.

According to research, plastic leaves a fatal legacy in our oceans, serving as the world's most oversized natural carbon sink.

It is estimated that at least 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean yearly, wreaking havoc on livelihoods and ecosystems.

Experts says the amount of plastic residue in the ocean is so large that it's called the "7th continent" adding that at this rate, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans.

Evidently, the human race is in grave danger, and the only way to change the narrative is to face reality and stop using plastics at all costs.
Keep in mind that every action counts. Get involved today.
