Plastic Impact on Health
How all plastics are not bad and how medical plastic is beneficial.
Improved Quality Of Life
Medical grade plastics have also helped to make the lives of amputees more comfortable. Since plastic can be highly personalized thanks to injection molding, a patient can receive a lightweight, durable prosthetic. Many plastics are also hypoallergenic, so patients with allergies to traditional medical materials like latex are at a lower risk of reaction during treatment.
Plastic has a huge impact on our community and environment from plastic water bottles to plastic bags to food packaging. When plastic comes into contact with the soil, air and water, it contaminates them all and we then consume food and water which has been contaminated with plastic. It stays in the ecosystem to play havoc with animal and human health. There are some short and long-term impacts on our health due to plastic which we must be wary of.
How reusable bottles help our planet?
- The purchase of just one Happy Bottle diverts 1,460 plastic water bottles from ending up in landfills. The average consumer needs four plastic bottles of water per day to stay hydrated. When you multiply this by the billions of individuals still purchasing plastic water bottles, a tiny change in consumer behaviour can trigger a massive reduction in plastic waste.
