How is plastic made?


- raw materials, oil or plants
- refined into ethane and propane
- get treated with heat
- turns into ethylene and propylene
- combined together they create polymers

Annual average


How does the plastic get to the ocean?


Impact on the enviroment/ people

-

- takes many years to decompose

- animals get strangled in bags or mistake them for
- Impacts on food and human health and wildlife


How does this relate the climate

Sunlight and heat cause greenhouse gases to be released


- our climate changes

- the planet is getting hotter
- Plastic breaks down faster
- increasing the rate of climate change

Degradation of plastic



- there is no real degradation, so no
- creates so-called microplastic particles
- are smaller than 5 millimeters.

How is plastic recycled?

Solucion -What can be done better?

Avoid plastic polluters

Reduce chemical pollutants

Avoid products that contain microbeads

Reduce, reuse, recycle

Avoid synthetic clothing

Organize/participate

in beach cleansups

Support ocean

organizations

Plastic goes into the ocean through a poor waste management/recycling systemgarbage

from cities and industrial center flows into rive and sea

lost loads and ship materials

garbage illegaly dumped at sea

garbage swept out to sea by hurricanes, floods, and tsunamis

animals get strangled in bags or mistake them for food

Impacts on food and human health and wildlife

harm to humans, animals and plants through toxic

pollutants.

affects all organisms in the food chain

EU citizen creates 31kg of plastic waste per year(2015)

plastic is made from raw materials, oil or plants- refined into ethane and propane- get treated with heat in a process called “cracking” - turns them into ethylene and propylenethis materials combined results plastic

Plastics break down into smaller and smaller pieces,

but no real degradation, i.e. no decomposition

of the plastic, takes place. This creates so-called

microplastic particles, including plastic particles

that are smaller than 5 millimeters.

Recycle properly

Reduce,reuse,recycle plastics

As it does, sunlight and heat cause the plastic to release powerful greenhouse gases, leading to an alarming feedback loop
