Would you agree that plastic pollution is the next big environmental problem to emerge in our time or do you think the problem is overblown?
According to the study, plastic pollution is becoming the next biggest environmental problem. In my opinion, I also agree that it is going to emerge soon. In the present day, its’ occurring in small and big sizes, which affects all types of organisms. Therefore, plastic pollution affects the tiny organisms, which leads to poisoning of the larger ones (Chae & An, 2018). For instance, they consume them and experience indigestion to larger animals that depend on them for food. It means that plastic pollution will affect all organisms despite the sizes.
