In 2021, France has banned most of these plastic products. This year, it has gradually banned the plastic packaging of more than 30 kinds of fruits and vegetables, the use of plastic packaging in newspapers, the addition of non biodegradable plastics in tea bags, and the distribution of free plastic toys for children with fast food.
Canada’s environment minister also acknowledged that Canada is not the first country to ban plastics, but it is in the leading position.
On June 7, a study in the cryosphere, a magazine of the European geoscience Union, showed that scientists discovered micro plastics in the snow samples of Antarctica for the first time, which shocked the world!
Micro plastics have appeared in Antarctic waters as early as 2018. However, it is the first time that these pollutants have been found in Antarctic snow, which has aroused the concern of environmentalists from all walks of life around the world.
The researchers found that the average liter of melted snow contained 29 plastic particles. The impact of micro plastics reaching such remote areas as Antarctica is undoubtedly huge.
In millions of years, Antarctic organisms have adapted to extreme environmental conditions, and environmental changes caused by human beings are threatening the ecosystem of “the last piece of pure land on earth”.
