Piling up of millions of tons of plastics in landfills and other suitable environment results in the release of harmful contaminants in to the soil and groundwater. Leaching of hazardous contaminants in to the soil reduces the fertility of the soil required for agriculture and excessive seepage of leachates also spoils the quality of groundwater. This increases soil and groundwater toxicity, which makes it unsuitable for any human activity. Burning of plastics also releases toxic fumes in to the surrounding environment and this leads to rapid air pollution. Inhalation of poisonous chemicals and other green house gases emitted during air pollution results in the deterioration of human and animal health. The toxi
