Does the production of plastic contaminate water sources?



  1. 0 Votes

    Most plastics are made from oil so the process of creating plastics from natural petroleum itself releases most of the same hazardous chemicals and gases into the air as using oil does. When plastic is not properly disposed of or not recycled, chemicals used to make plastic can leach into the water and poison the wildlife. The plastic containers themselves are hazardous as many animals will eat the plastic thinking it is food.
