|Dialogue between Two Friends on Plastic Pollution|
Nisha: Hi, how are you, Meher?
Meher: I am fine. How are you? Why are you looking so worried?
Nisha: I am okay, but I am a bit tensed for our environment.
Meher: Yes, our environment has lots of problems and dangers.
Nisha: Yeah, I have read an article in today’s newspaper about plastic pollution.
Meher: Oh, what have you learned?
Nisha: I learned that plastic pollution is a big threat to the entire environment. It is hampering everywhere in the biodiversity.
Meher: Oh God, I never heard about that before. Can you share with me more?
Nisha: Yes, of course I can.
Meher: Are you talking about the plastics that we are using regularly?
Nisha: Yes. We use plastic bags and most of the food and other stuff are packed by plastics. Do you know what we do with the wastage plastics? We throw them away. It’s a type of material that stays the same for hundreds of years under the soil and spoils the soil’s ability to grow trees and other plants.
Meher: Oh my god. Then what should we do to prevent this problem?
Nisha: We need to reduce using plastics.
Meher: Is that even possible?
Nisha: Why not? There are lots of countries in the world where plastic is totally banned. Look at Bhutan and few other European countries. They have banned plastic completely.
Meher: I didn’t know about that. But I think this is a challenging decision to make for a country.
Nisha: Yes it is.
Meher: Then what can we do now?
Nisha: We shouldn’t throw the plastic here and there. We should keep it in the recycle bin. If we keep plastic there then these plastics will go to a place where they will recycle them and release them as new plastic.
Meher: That’s a good idea. This will save the environment.
Meher: Thank you so much for your information.
Nisha: You are welcome. Take care; see you, bye for now.

Taara: I agree with you. Do you know what impact we are having in the world, due to too much plastic pollution?
Tania: Yeah, the temperature is being high day by day. The ice is melting and the sea level in going up.

Taara: Do you think it’s possible?
Tania: Yes, it is possible. There are lots of countries in the world they proved that it’s possible to reduce pollution.
