24 seconds: Did you know that everyday products such as plastic bottles or plastic bags are extremely harmful to the environment? These conventional plastics can take hundreds of years to decompose and although many people try to recycle, a huge amount of plastic ends up in landfills or the surrounding environment. There those plastics stay polluting the environment and harming organisms both on land and in the oceans. In order to keep the earth, our home, clean we have to start putting more effort into using less products containing these harmful plastics. For example, why not use reusable water bottles instead of the disposable ones? Or, why not use cloth bags or paper bags instead of the plastic alternatives?
7 words: Reduce plastic waste by using sustainable products.
