Plastic is a scientific product of the twentieth century. It was created with the original intention of facilitating people. However, it is now causing great harm to the world. Therefore, countries around the world have begun to deal with this hazard and reduce pollution as much as possible. Environmentalists have greatly appreciated this, but another threat has slowly grown. With the development and spread of new corona virus, personal protective equipment for combating viruses is becoming another major problem in the world.
During the fight against COVID-19, masks are a necessity for people’s lives, so they are mass produced, and at the same time the handling of used masks has also become a problem. It will pose a huge threat to our environment even if a mask is handled and recycled properly by a research report. Because the environment we live in is different, the measures for recycling are not as extensive as those promoted, resulting in a large number of masks scattered in nature every month. The composition of the mask contains plastic, which means that many plastics are not processed in time, which means that it adds a burden to the contemporary environment.
Those masks were not handled properly were discovered by us in the ocean. These wastes are considered by marine life to be predators, threatening the safety of marine life. Plastic waste is deeply hurting the world. Not only affects us humans, but also causes harm to live things, but also threatens our nature.
It is necessary to strengthen the management of plastic waste, not only for the government, but also for our own human beings. Each of us should pay attention to our actions, recognize the hazards of plastic waste, protect the environment, and protect nature.
