Explain how, the use of plastics has a bad effect on the environment.

The use of plastic has a bad effect on the environment because it is non-biodegradable. It takes several years for plastic to decompose and it is not environment friendly. It causes environmental pollution. Also, the burning process of synthetic material is quite slow and it does not get completely burnt easily. It releases lots of poisonous fumes into the atmosphere when burned and causes air pollution.
