The British Daily once reported that foam blocks were found on frozen ice floes only 1,000 miles away from the North Pole. This is the first time that plastic contaminants have been found in the region. Previously, due to the presence of sea ice, pollutants are unable to enter the area. This is a wake-up call for our humans. We should protect the environment! When it comes to environmental protection, recycling waste foam is worthy of attention.
Scientists said that this is one of the most pollution incidents on the northern planet, and they are worried that climate change will cause the ice to melt. Eventually, pollutants will flow into the Arctic.
These foam blocks of polystyrene were discovered during pioneering missions by explorers. They went deeper into the Arctic Ocean waters than ever before by two yachts. The observer said that he has been exploring the Arctic for the past 25 years, but he has never seen such a large and very obvious waste. They are on top of the ice. More alarming is that by the summer of 2050, there may be no more ice in the Arctic Ocean, and what followed is human intervention, which will adversely affect wildlife.
As we all know, foam materials are usually only used once and then thrown away, which is very wasteful and harmful to the environment. Millions of tons of white foam wastes will not rot and transform after use. It will be thrown into nature. Moreover, the foam wastes cannot degrade and disappear by itself. Therefore, it will cause serious environmental pollution.
