Impact of Single Use Plastic and Its Subsequent Substitutes

Riddhisha Jain*

Plastic has been in the human civilization from the past two decades now. Hundreds of factories around the world are now competing against each other to gain an inch in the plastic industry. As it is said that ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, humans have stopped at nothing to make life easier, this has led to the development of various kinds of plastic. A predominant type of plastic, single use plastic, is been used by billions of people around the world without being aware of the danger it causes to the life on earth. Due to its cheapness and durability, it is being used and the due to the careless dumping of the single use plastic has led to the death of thousands of animals in the oceans. This leads to the question of the substitutes and alternatives in order to make sure that the human race and the animal kingdom survives and thrives in the future years. In this research paper, I have tried to find the alternatives and solution to the single use plastic and how to manage the already existing plastic debris that we humans have gave birth to. This research paper also contains a survey is related to the willingness of the people to adapt to the alternatives and the substitutes of single use plastic.
