REC Y CLE REC Y CLE We live in a world with beautiful mountains and rivers, which is the best gift of nature to us, but this beautiful scenery is broken by garbage pollution. The discarded garbage makes the natural scenic spot worse and worse. The discharge of industrial waste is an important reason for the large increase in the plastic environment. The high cost of wastewater treatment makes more and more micro plastics flow into the environment and deposit in soil and water sources, resulting in pollution. Cosmetic abrasives, artificial leather and other substances are gradually broken into smaller fragments under complex environmental conditions, coupled with the pollution generated in road transportation, these factors account for 80% of the land-based sources of micro plastics. Plastic particles can be integrated into soil aggregates and soil masses to varying degrees: loosely form micro beads and fragments, and more closely form micro fibers, affecting crop growth. Plastics exist in terrestrial ecosystems, and 79% of the global plastic waste is accu- mulated in landfills. Improper treatment of domestic waste, such as incineration and landfill, leads to a large number of micro plastics entering the environment. Industrial wastewater with plastic is discharged into the ocean, resulting in the death of a large number of marine organisms, the destruction of the marine ecological environment and the decline of biodiversity. Plastics are difficult to degrade, not only have an impact on the environ- ment, but also accumulate in orga- nisms, marine organisms die, or bring pollution to people's table. Every year, 100 million marine animals die from plastic waste, and nearly 1,000 kinds of marine animals are affected by marine pollution We manufacture 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which is disposable Every year, 8.3 million tons of garbage enter the ocean, of which 236,000 tons are micro plastics that marine organisms mistakenly think of as food 269,000 tons of garbage are floating on the sea Every year, 100,000 marine animals die because they are wrapped in plastic One third of marine mammals may be entangled in garbage Eliminate plastics, we are in action
