Paper or plastic?

Paper or Plastic, future of trash, Pollution, garbage,


On every front-land, air, and water-human activities have consequences, environmental stresses, some urgent and all needing attention. No part of the world remains untouched, no natural system is untainted. our forests regulate water flow, retain carbon, distribute nutrients, and produce soil-yet they are disappearing.
cutting, burning, and levelling operations reduce forests, mostly tropical, by an area equal to Florida each year. Habitat loss threatens species. coastal area experience degradation. by 2060, erosion may claim a quarter of all homes in the U.S within 500 feet of the shoreline. Our oceans are polluted and overexploited. The atmosphere itself has come under assault. Global Warming is Predicted to cause the loss of half the boreal forests, millions more malaria cases, and the displacement of millions of people by rising sea levels.


Paper or Plastic? If you are caught up in the paper versus plastic debate at the grocery store, don't assume that your choice of paper is the more environmentally sound decision. Paper bags use more resources in their production, although they have a greater chance of being recycled and of breaking down when they do make it to the landfill.
   Plastic bags, which are cheaper to manufacture, create less trash by weight but do not break down. Burning them to create electricity puts heavy metals into the air and toxic ash into solid waste. Today, some stores offer an only paper, preferring recyclables.

GROCERY STORE CHOICES symbolize consumer quandaries. as to the choice between paper and plastic, the best is a reusable bag.


Humans today create a lot of garbage. In time past, there was less. People owned fewer things, Used things longer, and much of their waste decomposed. Today, trash has staying power, made from materials that will still be intact when we no longer are. 
   In the United States, trash some times goes to a landfill, where it is dumped in a lined pit, compacted, and covered with soil in a sequence of layers. Other garbage is incinerated. More localities are requiring residents to separate recyclable materials. these are reprocessed or, sometimes, incinerated to produce energy.
Garbage Dupmping Ground, What is the Future of Trush, Paper or Plastic?,

   Some areas of people of the planet face extreme waste disposal situations: Antarctica, for example, surprisingly. decades of exploration there have produced more than 70 waste sites that contain solid waste of all kinds as well as chemicals and heavy metals that must be contained. cycles of freezing and thawing, paired with the logistics and expense of transporting waste or neutralizing contaminated land, pose formidable challenges. Charged chemical compounds that trap pollutants have shown some success and may have applications in similar habits, such as northern Russia and Alaska.
