Plastic bottles are one of the most frequent objects we can find in the litter that pollute nature. As plastic is not biodegradable, they last hundreds of years in the environment. Moreover, their cap, plastic ring or the smaller fragment they may turn into, due to degradation, are a real danger for wild animals. They are attracted by their colours and eat them mistaking them with food, and the consequence of this ingestion is a long agony.
Besides, we must not forget to mention that plastic bottles are also a health problem. Plastic chemical components can easily contaminate any drink contained in the bottle and thus be dangerous for us.
