Global Warming is the greatest environmental issue in thepresent time.
It is caused by huge amount of wastes that are being burned everyday in dumpsites that contribute to emission of substances that affect theozone layer. Since population every year increases, more resources are usedthus more wastes are being produced. Some people recycle plastics. They create newproducts out of waste materials then sometimes sell it. Usually the plasticsbeing recycled are examples of polyethylene terephthalate (PET). PET bottlesare transparent in color and are easier to process because these are thinnerthan HDPE or High Density Polyethylene.
Thus, HDPE bottles are harder todispose than PET bottles. More than 8 million tons of HDPE are usedtoward blow-molded containers such as milk jugs, juice containers, detergentbottles, motor oil bottles, trash bins, etc. (RecycledPlastic, 2014). It’s strongerthan standard polyethylene and it acts as an effective barrier against moistureand remains solid at room temperature (Engineered Plastic Systems, LLC, 2015).
