At the United Nations facts, plastic waste, which accounts for about 90% of the total mass of the waste, each year requires more than a million waterfowl and over 100 000 marine mammal life. Dead birds found in the stomachs syringes, toothbrushes and lighters, which birds apparently held for a food.
Slowly rotating mass of the waste threat to human health. Every year, the natural environment into the hundreds of millions of tiny plastic ball - plastic raw material industry - which end up at sea, and as small sponges absorb various chemicals such as hydrocarbons, or pesticides. Then they enter the food chain. This enters the ocean, into the ocean living creatures, and finally - on your dinner table.
What are the most polluted waters of our planet? In the first place on this list are cigarette filters – fished more than 3.2 million filters. Dragged from the water to 1.4 million plastic bags, plastic packaging 942 thousand, 937 thousand cap and stopper the bottles and jars, 26,585 tires. British coast, environmental activists have found more than 19,500 cast fishing nets. Ocean Conservancy representatives in particular that ranks among the only items that are easy enough to rinse them ashore - afraid to even imagine what is going on at the bottom of the seas and oceans.
Before waste, it is a resource. From plastics will be produced a new plastic, from glass - new glass products, from paper - new paper, from food residues will be produced a compost.
For example, one cell phone manufacturing process produced about 75 kg of waste, computer - 1500 kg of waste (under the "Wuppertal" institute). Every day talking on the phone and working with computers, most of these indicators do not know anything, but it does not reduce our consumption of the burden on the environment.
