Once these products find their way either onto the land or water, the chemicals contained in the plastics slowly start sipping into these environments (Amadeo, 2020). On land surfaces, the chemicals sip into the soil, affecting agricultural land and underground water. Such land surfaces end up becoming unsuitable for agricultural activities due to pollution. Human beings’ well-being is also threatened when they consume or use water from sources containing plastic pollutants (Amadeo, 2020). These pollutants might lead to people suffering from diseases such as cancer. Plastic pollution also has an adverse effect on fishing and tourism.
