Conclusion Plastic materials are designed and made into products and used by people in many ways like buying daily use made with or packaged in plastic. The plastic would then be disposed as waste into the environment from disposal behaviors, sewage outlets, waterways and by being blown from land fill sites, which would cause pollution ( Blasco, Corsi, & Matranga, 2015). In future research, people had better develop some safer or more sustainable materials, such as degradable natural products or biodegradable plastics to alternate the harmful plastic products. These new materials all followed the main principles that be nontoxic and finally friendly to the environment, at last reach the goal of being biodegradable and recycled. 8

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
