Pollution is not getting any better

Pollution is not getting any better

Do you think that plastic bags should be banned everywhere? The trash from the things we consume daily is ruining the environment and living things.

Trash is currently just destroying the earth. This has been going on for years now and that is happening all around the world including in the oceans. 

Trash gathers up which then consumes the earth and living things. This is really bad for the environment due to people throwing trash on the ground or in the ocean. The amount of trash that is just thrown on the ground or in the ocean from around the world is about 6.3 billion tons of trash.

“The strongest governments on earth cannot clean up pollution by themselves. They must rely on each ordinary person, like you and me, on our choices, and on our will.” (Chai Jing) The debris harms animal habitats, transports chemical pollutants, and interferes with living things such as plants that consume the waste. “Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.” (Jacques Yves Cousteau)

In the end, we can all work together to help collect all of the trash on Earth to create a healthy environment.
