Our Human Beings are genius to create something for the convenience of our own. Sometimes it is a technology breakthrough, but through long-term validation, it turns out to be a setback and damage to our health and our environment.
Plastic is a good example, its durability and many other features help our human being a lot and we created so many things helpful to our human being, but at the end, we are now facing Plastic Pollution.
What is the Plastic pollution?
“It is the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, or humans.”
It is not something far away to us, Plastic is becoming an immediate and present danger to us. Let's look at the numbers:
Let's explain to you why and how the plastic is harmful to your health and also the earth.
Plastic pollution can afflict land, waterways, and oceans. Living organisms, particularly marine animals, can be harmed either by mechanical effects, such as entanglement in plastic objects or problems related to ingestion of plastic waste or through exposure to chemicals within plastics that interfere with their physiology. Humans are also affected by plastic pollution, such as through the disruption of various hormonal mechanisms.
Thanks, Plastic Oceans Foundation for the short film below to explain how plastic affects our health and how severe the plastic pollution has become.
Back to our medical industry, the agony is that while we are trying to fix human health problems, we are actually creating more problems for the generation after.
For infection control purpose, more and more items become plastic and disposable, but when we dispose of more single-use plastic ware, we actually creating more health risk for the environment and ourselves.
What can we do to change this ?
As the pioneer of the biodegradable Medical Hollowware, we dedicate ourselves to a great mission that is to reduce plastic footprint and negative impacts on our environment. We hope that one day all the single-use & disposable medical plastic ware will be replaced by biodegradable & environmentally friendly material. It is a greener choice for our future generations.
