The plastic waste in marine always comes from trash cans, mismanaged landfills, tourism and fishery activities. Some of the material will sink into the ocean floor, and some other plastic waste will float far away with the ocean currents, which polluting the coastline.
At the same time, plastic waste is also a serious damage to the ecological environment, which includes sea animals and other marine organisms ate into the plastic may lead to disease or death, plastic will be wrapped in dolphins and whales and other biological, and destruction of important marine habitat, such as coral reefs.
In addition, plastic waste may also produce chemical pollution, alien species attached to the plastic fragments will drift with the waves, endangering coastal countries, tourism and fisheries, such as pollution of the beach and damage to fishing gear.
A large number of waters in the North Atlantic have found microbes gathered on microoplastics. This micro-plastic can spread harmful microorganisms, pathogens and algae and other species, threatening the survival of local marine life.
Plastic plays a very important role in modern life, but we can not ignore the environmental impact of plastic use. These reports indicate that reducing, recovering and redesigning plastic products can bring a lot of green economic benefits: reducing economic losses to marine ecosystems, tourism and fisheries, especially for developing countries; saving money for businesses innovation opportunities at the same time, reduce the risk of corporate reputation.
So EPS recycling is very necessary to protect our environment. And then we can reuse it to do some other products.
