Singakanani “Esisidla” Ngeplastiki Nsuku Zonke?

Namuhla iplanethi ibona ukungcola okukhulu kwepulasitiki kunanini ngaphambili. Engqungqutheleni yeNtaba i-Everest, amamitha ayi-3 900 ngaphansi kweSouth China Sea, phakathi kwezingqimba zeqhwa lase-Arctic futhi nangaphansi kwezinga lokungcola kwepulasitiki iMariana Trench kukuyo yonke indawo.

Esikhathini sokudla okusheshayo, sidla ukudla okulula okuvalwe ngepulasitiki, sithola amaphasela asezikhwameni zeposi zepulasitiki. Ngisho nokudla okusheshayo kusongwa ngeziqukathi zepulasitiki. Ngokusho kweGlobal News nocwaningo olwenziwe yiVictoria University, ososayensi bathole ama-microplastics ayi-9 emzimbeni womuntu kanti umuntu omdala waseMelika angagwinya izinhlayiya ezisukela ku-126 kuye ku-142 microplasitc bese ehogela izinhlayiya zepulasitiki eziyi-132 kuya ku-170 ngosuku.

Yini ama-microplastics?

Ichazwe yisazi saseBrithani uThompson, i-microplastic ibhekisa kwizicucu zepulasitiki nezinhlayiya ezinobubanzi bazo bungaphansi kwama-micrometer ayi-5. Ama-micrometer ama-5 acwebe kaningi kunonwele olulodwa futhi akubonakali ngamehlo abantu.

Ngabe i-microplastics ivelaphi?

Imikhiqizo ye-Acquatic

Selokhu kwasungulwa ipulasitiki ngekhulu le-19, sekukhiqizwe amathani epulasitiki angaphezu kwezigidi eziyizinkulungwane eziyi-8,3, phakathi kwawo, amathani angaphezu kwezigidi eziyisishiyagalombili aphelela olwandle minyaka yonke ngaphandle kokulungiswa. Imiphumela: kutholakale ama-microplastics ngaphezulu kwezinto eziphilayo zasemanzini ezingaphezu kwe-114.

Ekucutshungulweni kokudla

Ososayensi muva nje benze ucwaningo olubanzi emikhiqizweni yamanzi angaphezu kwamabhodlela angama-250 emazweni ayi-9 bathola ukuthi amanzi amaningi asemabhodleleni anawo. Ngisho namanzi ompompi anama-microplastics kuwo. Ngokusho kwesikhungo sokucwaninga saseMelika, phakathi kwamazwe ayi-14 amanzi awo ompompi abe ngaphansi kwalolu cwaningo, ama-83% awo atholakale enama-microplastics kuwo. Ingasaphathwa eyokulethwa netiye le-bubble ezitsheni zepulasitiki nezinkomishi ezilahlwayo esicishe sixhumane nazo nsuku zonke. Imvamisa kukhona ukumbozwa kwePolyethylene ezohlukana izinhlayiya ezincane.

③ Usawoti

Lokho akulindelekile neze! Kepha akunzima ukukuqonda. Usawoti uvela olwandle futhi lapho amanzi engcoliswa, usawoti angahlanzeka kanjani? Abaphenyi bathole izingcezu ezingaphezu kwama-550 ze-microplastics kusawoti wasolwandle ongu-1 kg.

Ecess Izidingo Zasekhaya Zansuku zonke

Iqiniso elilodwa okungenzeka ukuthi awuqaphelanga ukuthi ama-microplastics angenziwa yimpilo yakho yansuku zonke. Isibonelo, ukuwasha izingubo ze-polyester ngomshini wokuwasha kungakhipha ifayibha enhle kakhulu elondolo. Lapho leyo micu ikhishwa emanzini angcolile, aba yi-microplastics. Abaphenyi bacabanga ukuthi edolobheni elinabantu abayisigidi, kungakhiqizwa ithani elilodwa le-fiber enhle kakhulu, elingana nenani lezikhwama zepulasitiki ezingacekeleke phansi eziyi-150 000.

Izingozi zepulasitiki

Imicu emihle ingagcina isemangqamuzaneni nasezitho zethu zomzimba, ezingadala izifo ezimbi njengokufakwa kobuhlungu obungapheli kanye nomdlavuza.

Silwa kanjani?

I-Naturepoly ilwela ukukhiqiza ukushintshwa okubolayo kwama-plastiki. Sitshale imali ocwaningweni nasekuthuthukisweni kwezinto zokwakha izitshalo ezinjenge-PLA, izinto zomoba. Sizisebenzisela ukukhiqiza izidingo zasendlini njengesikhwama semfucumfucu, isikhwama sokuthenga, isikhwama sezinambuzane, ukugoqa ukugoqa, ukusika okulahlwayo, izinkomishi, imicu kanye nezinye izimpahla eziningi ezizayo.
