Plastic Pollution is a Killer for Camels in the Desert


The plastic is one of the hazardous product of the modern era, scattered everywhere, from mountains to the seabed. Deserts are also full of the plastic pollution. Whe the plastic is in the form of bottles, bages etc, it harms the plants and retard the growth and germination. With the time, the plastic breaks in small pieces, becoming more dangerous and hazardous, especially for the livestock. The socalled decoposable plastic is even more dangerous in my view. It shattered on a broad surface, usually accomulated under the bushes which ultimately make a way to the camel or thero livestock’s gut.

Once in a weak, I go to the desert, spend some hours and collect the plastic and through in the nearby wastebins. During such exercise, I almost collect up to 10 kg waste, mostly bottles and other plastic. I collect it in plastic bags and share the photographs on my social media to give 2 lesson to the people, 1. to not through plastic exept in the wastebin and 2 collect some waste from the desert whenever you visit the desert.

Here are some pictures of my desert cleaning activity.

Some bottles are glassmade
The scattered tinny pieces of the socalled decomposable plastic, this will go in the camel gut, so sad
