Your friends are correct,

Plastic is a non biodegradable substance. Its ill effects include;

1. Accumulation of plastic in the soil causes soil pollution as it does not decay.

2. Accumulation of plastic in water bodies kills fishes and other aquatic organisms.

3. Burning of plastic produces harmful gases and causes air pollution.
