Despite being very useful, it is advised to restrict the use of plastic because of the following reasons:
  • The articles made of plastics are non-biodegradable. They do not decompose (or rot) easily. This causes a great problem in the disposal of plastic waste.
  • The burning of plastic wastes gives out harmful gases which pollute the air. So, it is not advisable to dispose of the used plastic articles by burning them.
