A young Nigerian climate Activist and the founder of Longer life Synergy, Mr Emmanuel Echezona Onuegbu, has warned that if plastic disposal is not properly mitigated might lead to further Eco-Damages, in a post released on his official Instagram page which reads
“The rate of plastic disposal is alarming, this is a problem we should not over look, this calls for global attention, aside from these Plastics blocking the water ways and also leading to flood, alot of aquatic life are wasted on daily basis, Human skins are exposed to toxic chemicals aswell which is not healthy for the balance of our #ecosystem, improper disposal of plastics has a lot of negative impact on our environment.
I urge all companies involved in using Plastics to package their products, to spend quality time through advertisement, educting the public on best ways to mitigate this plastic wastes,
Do you know that exposure to toxic chemicals coming out of plastic can cause cancers, birth defects, impaired immunity and other health problems?
Please let us Reuse, Reduce, Recycle and Educate the public on this as it is a very serious problem if not taking care of.
