Plastic Pollution Crisis: Unraveling the Environmental and Health Impacts


Ruth Camphor*

The plastic pollution crisis has emerged as one of the most pressing environmental issues of our time, with wide-ranging impacts on ecosystems, human health, and global sustainability. This paper aims to comprehensively examine the multifaceted environmental and health effects of plastic pollution. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we analyse the sources, distribution, and persistence of plastic waste in various ecosystems. We also delve into the pathways through which micro plastics enter the food chain and subsequently affect human health. By synthesizing current research and data, this paper sheds light on the urgent need for effective mitigation strategies and policy interventions to address the plastic pollution crisis.
