Perils of Plastic Pollution

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest environmental concerns. It does a lot of damages to the world's eco-system. In our daily life, the random use of water bottles, bags, utensils etc. made of plastic is cheap and comfortable. But we are ignorant of its impact on our health and environment. Plastic pollution affects the natural environment and harms plants, animals, and humans. Unlike other metals plastic appears to be everlasting. It takes many years for naturalization. Hence we should restrict the random use of plastic products and find out something healthier substitute to save us all from an early disaster. I took these photographs in Bankura, India for photo manipulation wherein I made my humble efforts in depicting the struggle for survival of a plastic affected man from the perils of the plastic world.
