Plastics are light, clean, cheap, easy to use, stylish and beautiful, and bright in color. With the rapid economic development, plastics have become an indispensable part of our social and economic life.
However, due to the low recycling rate of plastics and the difficulty of degrading plastics, discarded plastic wastes can stay in nature for hundreds of years, and the amount and output of plastics have been increasing rapidly today, which is harmful to the ecological environment on the earth. Serious pollution has occurred. Therefore, "plastic restriction" or "plastic ban" has become a global consensus, and many countries and regions have begun to issue relevant regulations in the direction of "plastic restriction" or "plastic ban" and implement corresponding effective measures. At present, white pollution has gradually become a global issue that cannot be ignored. Domestic and international systems are constantly formulating and improving related systems to reduce white pollution. Therefore, more and more people concerned are constantly discussing how to make plastics more environmentally friendly. In fact, most of the plastic products that closely follow our daily lives are not the culprit causing environmental damage. It is the disposable plastic products that really bring pressure to the environment. These disposable plastic products are as difficult to degrade as ordinary plastics, and because they are usually small in size, they are basically discarded at will, which makes them difficult to recycle and cause incalculable harm to the environment.
In the face of the current increasingly serious white pollution, what we have to do is to use recyclable items as much as possible to reduce our dependence on disposable products; and then we can choose ecologically degradable plastics as a substitute for plastics. Ecologically degradable plastics can be completely degraded into carbon dioxide, water and other environmentally harmless substances in the natural environment, and will not cause secondary pollution to the environment. Ecologically degradable plastics play an important role in today's market and are an important part of the environmental protection cause of plastics.
Facing the environmental hazards of plastic waste and marine microplastics, ecologically degradable plastics have received more and more people's praise and attention with their own advantages. Ecologically degradable plastics will face a good development prospect.
