Plastic-A big menace:
The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Birmingham, stated that "Even if we all stopped using plastic right now, there would still be decades, if not centuries-worth of plastics being washed down rivers and into our seas.” Most of the plastic waste generated ends up in the oceans and other water bodies, threatening aquatic wildlife. There have been some innovative solutions provided by school students in capturing microplastics.
