My matter project was about plastic manufacturing and plastic in the ocean. the reason why I decided on plastic was because I know it’s one of the biggest problem in the world right now besides for covid-19. this is my big paragraph I made and my kahoot.
How do you feel when you hear about plastic manufacturing and plastic in the ocean? When I hear them I think of air pollution and sea animals dying. You might wonder why air pollution? Well when you make anything in a factory there is smoke that comes out of the top of the factory and it’s called air pollution. Why are animals dying from plastic? It’s because they’re getting trapped in it, and they are eating plastic and plastic has chemicals in it so basically they are eating chemicals. So yes, there are some good things you get from plastic like, medical equipment, reusable water bottle, garbage bags, silicone straws, silicone cupcake pans, silicone spatial, silicone molds, silicone muffin cups and pretty much anything made from silicone because it’s reusable. But there’s also negative implications you get from plastic like full landfills, animals dying, plastic in the oceans, plastic in tap water, and plastic also doesn’t decompose. Did you know that there is more than just plastic in the ocean and air pollution like there’s so much plastic in the ocean and washed up onto land like bottles,bottle caps, grocery bags, face shields, masks, milk cartons, styrofoam, straws and so much more. Also did you know by 2050 there will be 5 billion tons of plastic waste. Over 700 species of marine animals have eaten plastic or are stuck in the plastic that is in the oceans, and also sadly dying. Finally did you know that every day around 8 million pieces of plastic make it into the oceans. There’s still so much plastic in the oceans. I’m saying plastic is bad for the world even though there are some good reasons to have it. You don’t have to fully get rid of it just use less of it.hope you have a good day! Save the oceans and save our lives.
