Plastic waste is defined as products made from plastic that are difficult to decompose in the environment and are used, including bottles, plastic bags, old toys, etc.
Every year, according to statistics, the world generates more than 300 million tons of plastic waste, of which 8 million tons of plastic waste is dumped into the ocean. According to a United Nations report, the amount of plastic waste each year is enough to surround the earth four times.
According to research results from the University of Georgia, Vietnam is one of the 20 countries with the most waste, and one of the five countries with the largest amount of plastic waste in the world’s oceans. Every year Vietnam dumps about 1.8 million tons of plastic waste into the sea.

  • Animals after eating plastic waste can die, leading to extinction, causing ecological imbalance
  • Plastic waste that is not handled properly will directly affect the air and water environment
  • When burned: plastic waste will produce toxic gases dioxin and furan that pollute the air, cause poisoning, affect the endocrine glands, reduce the immune system, and cause cancer.
  • When buried: plastic waste will make the soil unable to hold water and nutrients, hindering plant growth.
  • Plastic waste causes “white pollution” at tourist destinations, causing loss of aesthetics and affecting people’s rest and relaxation.

 

It can be seen that the impact of plastic waste is extremely serious, deeply affecting all creatures in our ecosystem. Therefore, many activities have been organized annually to collect plastic waste. Many signs and slogans “classify waste according to regulations” and “recycle and reuse” have increasingly appeared.
