Plastic pollution is an event that affects our environment very deeply. You may think what does that have to do with me?, actually everyone is guilty. We all use water bottles, plastic forks, and even plastic straws like the ones they give us at Starbucks. Plastic pollution is buildup of plastic or synthetic products which then create problems for wildlife and their lifestyle as well as for the human population. Some effects of plastic other than the decreasing of both human and wildlife population, is it also affects the economy which leads to damage of fisheries, shipping, and tourism. How?, you ask this is because of the decreasing number of tourists/tourism and marine debris. When plastic is produced its made from toxic materials such as benzene and vinyl hydrochloride which are both chemicals known to cause cancer. Once they are manufactured they contaminate our air and soil.
