Problem with recycling
In my class, we started ceremony a nonsubjective that highlighted recycling and the renders that ductile, chemicals, and the troubles It causes to marine life. After watching this documentary for a short period of time I was sense of touch frustrated. I am frustrated that these major Issues are cosmos interpreted lightly by so m either people. As a college school-age child we are pr all(prenominal)ed to ab verboten doing our part to save the world by recycling. This documentary was very insightful as I found out that non all pliant merchant ship be recycled.Plastic and its products are causation footing to the ocean life because tilt are eating the harmful waste. slightly other issue that was mentioned was how chemicals are dangerous. Many chemicals are not being tried in the united States of America before they are put out for everyone to use so the harm it is causing is affecting a absolute majority of our population. I had vaguely heard about these problems, but I ever much thought that these people, commonly known as tree huggers were Just sack over board and that there really wasnt that much harm being done. The first issue I will address Is the problem with recycling.Like I stated earlier not everything is recyclable. I used to Just bring in my plastic nursing bottles In the plastic recycling bal right outside my gate but then after watching the documentary, learned that the lids on plastic bottles could not be recycled arena they plastic too? I cute to do nearly research myself on what was and wasnt recyclable but each web site was a little different, so who do I listen to? After comparing one of the web sites to some of my plastics, I realized that most of my plastics had the recycling arrows on them, which I used to call up meant that the item was a recyclable item.This made me angry as some of the items are not recyclable which makes me feel likes its false advertisement and a way to make a sell. I tried recycling more than usual to do my part in saving the world and took the bottle caps off of every bottle I threw away. I might not be recycling everything properly, but some of It Is recyclable and It makes me feel unassailable knowing I am doing my part In making a difference. The next Issue that bothers me was the dangers plastic has brought to the ocean.Multiple pieces are being Injured because of the food waste (Including plastic) In the ocean. In the Great Pacific, there are patches of plastic waste, on with other garbage, where the sun is breaking the waste down into tiny pieces and the fish are mistaking it for food. After the fish eats the biodegradable plastic, they can not digest it and often die. The fish food to plastic symmetry used to be 16 in favor of the plastic now the ratio is 401 in favor of the plastic. This issue has had a negative come to on the marine animals.In Nebraska, we do not live by an ocean where I could easily organize or alp another group with a clean up day, so i nstead I decided I would pick up any chuck out I saw on the ground and continue to recycle any of the items I thought were recyclable. A lot of these plastic items are free, I feel If they charged for these Items three would not be as legion(predicate) and would be less likely to end up in the ocean formerly again I worked hard doing my part this week and felt Like I had made a small come to In helping save ocean life, but a small Impact Is better than no Impact The third and final issue I will address is the chemical problem.I did not know that several augur forces an issue if a problem arises. It is like chemicals are all liberal and create no harm until they are proven guilty. I felt terrible for EJB knowing his new childs toys contained chemicals that had never been tested. What would happen if the child had a reaction to these chemicals and something caused him serious harm? Sometimes the affects chemicals have can be irreversible and could cause the child to have perma nent damage and in such cases parents must deal with these problems when they show side effects of the chemicals causing damage to them.For this issue, I talked about it with my friends to inform others of how chemical testing is ancient and Just used when it causes a problem with someone. If we could be an advocate for chemical testing and get the word out to the public and have some of them lobby for our congressman to set laws for items to be tested for chemicals to ensure the publics safety. Once again, I feel this does not create a large impact on the harm plastic and chemicals are causing but it is a start to making our world a happier and healthier place to live.
