Transcript: 12/3/2019 By: Tresa Batchelder A World Made From Plastic Overview Overview It's all about convenience for us Pollution arising from plastic, in particular is a threat to the world's oceans and the creatures living in them as well as people too We need to remove plastic from our daily routine to ensure we are not a threat to animals and ourselves anymore Guy Graney's: "Slipping Through the Cracks" Pollution By Micro Plastics What are Micro Plastics? Micro plastics refer to the general class of synthetic plastic particles ranging in size between one and five millimeters Why are they a problem? Micro Plastics Are a Problem Because... They are very tiny so most filtration systems are not able to filter them out Marine life absorbs them and ingests them which results in suffocation and starvation They absorb trace chemicals from their environment which leads to food chain poisoning They will eventually make their way back to us in fish and sushi and this is a problem because they absorb toxins, which will end up poisoning us Annie Leonard's: "The Story of Bottled Water" Pollution By Plastic Water Bottles The Problems are... What's the Problem? 80% of water bottles end up in landfills where they will sit for thousands of years or burned in incinerators which release toxic pollutants (the rest gets recycled) Cities are spending millions of dollars dealing with plastic water bottles, but those millions of dollars could have been used to better our water systems since there are 1 billion people around the world without access to clean water. That money could also help prevent pollution. Plastics or Corporations? Plastics or Corporations? Some might say corporations play a bigger role in pollution than plastics. Children and teens exposed to polluted waterways usually carry around a thousand parasitic worms This causes a child to die every twenty seconds from a water related illness Health Problems Corporations don't seem to think twice of the environmental consequences, simply because they don't care It's more convenient for them to dispose of their waste into a local waterway, then to dispose of it the proper way Yes, these corporations do get caught, but they are fined a small fee for their actions which will not put a stop to the problem at all. Corporations have money and they're not going to let a small fine stop them. They will continue their actions because that is what is convenient for them Why?
