Plastic - A Boon or A Bane
Plastic - A Boon or A Bane Extensions of knowledge do not always enlarge our capacity for control. This holds true for our relation to nature, some of whose phenomena are alterable byman while others are not. Despite all increase in our information about heavenly phenomena,some lie entirely beyond human influence. For instance a geologist studies the nature of theearthquakes but he cannot cause or prevent this occurrence. In some cases, we are ourselves thedeterminants of nature, since the use we make of natural forces produces the result we havecaused. One such recent matter is the use of plastic.

Plastics varyimmensely in heat tolerance, hardness, and resiliency. Combined with this adaptability, thegeneral uniformity of composition and lightness of plastics ensures their use in almost allindustrial applications today Today plastics have replaced metals, natural fibres and hides, paper wood and stone and glass ceramics. Manufacturers use these plastics to make their productsstronger, lighter, inexpensive and durable.

Plastic is boon and curse even because plastic makes our life easy but at other side it is harmful for our environment.
  • -4
It depends on its usage-
If we use plastic in a way which affects the environment,it is surely a curse
but
if we use in a way which does not affects like-storing things etc.,then it can be found as helpful.

Plastic was thought to be a boon but it turned out to be a curse. Plastic can be very harmful as it produces harmful gases when it is burned. As it is non bio degradable, it is harmful to the soil and takes hundreds of years to degrade or decompose.?


Plastic is a boon for man but it is a curse for the master. It makes life comfortable for man but life tiring for the environment. Once animals have eaten it and due to choking they die?


Plastic is very harmful to living things. We should decrease the use of plastic.In India use of plastic has been banned.
Packaging represents the largest single sector of plastics use in the world today.?

Benefits of plastics-Boon?
The considerable growth in plastic use is due to the beneficial properties of plastics. These include:?

Extreme versatility and ability to be tailored to meet very specific technical needs.?
Lighter weight than competing materials, reducing fuel consumption during transportation.?
Extreme durability.?
Resistance to chemicals, water and impact.?
Good safety and hygiene properties for food packaging.?
Excellent thermal and electrical insulation properties.?
Relatively inexpensive to produce.?


Plastics makes up around 7% of the average household dustbin.?

Effects of plastic-Curse.?

Plastics production also involves the use of potentially harmful chemicals, which are added as stabilisers or colorants. Many of these have not undergone environmental risk assessment and their impact on human health and the environment is currently uncertain. An example of this is phthalates, which are used in the manufacture of PVC. PVC has in the past been used in toys for young children and there has been concern that phthalates may be released when these toys are sucked (come into contact with saliva). Risk assessments of the effects of phthalates on the environment are currently being carried out.?

The disposal of plastics products also contributes significantly to their environmental impact. Because most plastics are non-degradable, they take a long time to break down, possibly up to hundreds of years - although no-one knows for certain as plastics haven't existed for long enough - when they are landfilled. With more and more plastics products, particularly plastics packaging, being disposed of soon after their purchase, the landfill space required by plastics waste is a growing concern.?

Plastic waste, such as plastic bags, often becomes litter. For example, nearly 57% of litter found on beaches in 2003 was plastic.?

Recycling plastic -Advantages.?

Conservation of non-renewable fossil fuels - Plastic production uses 8% of the world's oil production, 4% as feedstock and 4% during manufacture.?
Reduced consumption of energy.?
Reduced amounts of solid waste going to landfill.?
Reduced emissions of carbon-dioxide (CO2), nitrogen-oxide (NO) and sulphur-dioxide (SO2).

plastic spoon is a boon if you are eating ice-cream during a picnic. But, a curse if the spoon snaps and is chucked into a waste basket. Eventually, the broken spoon will end up in a landfill site, where it will take many decades to rot down, if ever!

Plastic: Boon Or Curse

Plastic is an invention of man. It is a material created and extensively used by him. It is a synthetic or semi synthetic material. It is available in various shapes and thickness. Unique property of it is that it can be molded. Plastic is useful in many ways as well as a material of disadvantage to mankind. It is of great use in day to day life, but it cannot be destroyed no matter what efforts are made. Thus, this is a matter of serious issue.

 

PLASTIC AS A BOON:-

Plastic is a boon to mankind. It has proved to be very useful in all walks of life. Plastic is used as carry bag helpful to carry things. It is used by all the people, it is easily available as well as cheap. We cannot imagine our lives without it. It has become necessity of our lives. Earlier bags made out of cotton or jute were used. But, with the invent of plastic, these bags are replaced by plastic bags as aesthetically they look good and have become much commercialized. We are surrounded by plastic everywhere. Plastic bottles, plastic chairs, plastic toys are used by all. Even plastic containers has taken its place in our kitchen as they are easy to handle and quick to wash. Good quality plastics are unbreakable and are used in the manufacture of various articles like television, tape recorder, computers etc....In our day to day lives we use pens, boxes and many electrical appliances which are all made by plastics.

PLASTIC AS A CURSE:-

Plastic is very harmful to our health. It cannot be destroyed easily. Soil loses its fertility, if plastic is buried in the land. Water will become polluted and disease prone if plastic is dumped into it. It can be destroyed to some extent, only if it is burnt. Even after burning, it's physical form gets destroyed but it still exists in the gaseous form. It takes the form of some dangerous gas when it is burnt and there by pollute the environment. Also, due to it global warming has been increasing. Plastics can take thousands of years to decay. On consumption innumerable animals, birds and fishes die every year. Thus, it is not only harmful to human beings, in fact causing harm to other living beings too.

We are using plastics deliberately even in the places, where it's use is no way required. If we have to protect our environment we need to check its production. Plastics cannot be destroyed. Already tons of plastic is produced on daily basis, which after use, lingers over here and there. This has to be checked. Recycling is the best method. Instead of producing new , the older can be recycled as it is a non biodegradable object. Wherever not required, it's usage has to be stopped. We should cultivate the habit of using cloth bags or paper bags instead of plastic bags. Instead of using plastic containers, China clay containers can be used which look authentic and more beautiful. Instead of dumping water bottles here and there, should be sent to recycling.

Usage of plastic cannot be stopped completely. But, it's use can be decreased gradually. It is boon as well as curse to mankind. It is very beneficial and to rule out disadvantages and protect our environment it should be used cautiously and wherever required and not carelessly, as safeguarding our environment is our prime duty.

Plastic as a Curse

Misuse of any technology can lead to curse. Plastic was thought to be a boon but it turned out to be a curse. Plastic can be very harmful as it produces harmful gases when it is burned. As it is non bio degradable, it is harmful to the soil and takes hundreds of years to degrade or decompose. With more and more plastic products, particularly plastic packaging, being disposed of soon after their purchase, the landfill space required by plastics waste is a growing concern.

Plastic waste, such as plastic bags, often becomes litter. For example, nearly 57% of litter found on beaches in 2003 was plastic.
The waste problem is a major curse, mainly because they degrade slowly. They are difficult to recycle because of the great variety of plastics which are hardly distinguishable.

Many plastics poison the environment when degrading. PVC for example contains chlorine; generally there is no problem during use, but the chlorine returns into the environment when the waste is processed. Also, the manufacturing of plastics often creates large quantities of chemical pollutants.
Plasticizers like phthalates are suspected to cause upheaval in the hormone systems of animals and people, especially kids.
