    An analysis of the environmental effects of waste plastic contaminants
    Author(s): Marta Fernandez Batalla*

    As the topic of how to dispose of plastic at its end of life continues to be discussed on a global scale, the discovery of plastic by humans is quickly becoming a challenge. This discussion arises from a number of findings that, when plastic waste is disposed of improperly, the additives in plastic harm marine and terrestrial life by contributing to organic pollutants. In sub-Saharan Africa, where there is a growing population, managing waste in general and plastic waste in particular is a constant challenge. The majority of plastic waste is either burned openly or disposed of in open spaces or landfills, where additives pollute the environment, with only 15–25% of it recycled. Additionally, some of the waste enters global water networks through estuaries and continues to harm humans through the food chain. In order to draw attention to the detrimental effects that plastic waste.. View More»
