Plastic is one of the most used materials in the modern age. From toys to computers, from bottles to tanks, from pens to furniture, from clothes to vehicles, the list of products and processes where plastic is used is countless and still growing every day.

Plastic waste can be found in oceans, rivers, landfi lls, and roadsides etc., which causes pollution and contamination and poses risks to human health and the environment.
