Researchers have affirmed that inappropriate dumping of non-biodegradable materials presents regrettable impacts to the environment. Large companies that make huge profits from manufacturing non-biodegradable materials have undermined the attempt to turn modern world into a green environment. It is apparent that there is a need of formulate realistic and practical measures for fostering a green world in order to protect the current and generations.
The video on the bottled water highlights how the society continues to consume harmful products without their attention as companies whose main motive is maximizing their returns deceive them. From the video, one learns that contrary to consumers’ assumption, bottled water is not safe because some companies pack untreated water in the bottles and deceive public that their products are treated accordingly. In this respect, it becomes ironical to learn that tapped water is relatively safe and cleaner than bottled water. Tapped water is also cost effective and cheap than bottled water. The plastic bottles that preserve bottled water have a severe impact on the environment. This means going natural is safe and economical than adopting commercial products that the modern society presumes to be effective.
On the other hand, as described in the video “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch”, non-biodegradable materials that include plastic bottles are the main substances that have resulted to the current global warming (Stuff Project 1). The video has further confirmed that the world does not have the required capacity to dump non-biodegradable materials used in modern society. There are huge garbage patches of plastic materials especially in huge cities in the world. Lack of effective means of recycling and dumping plastic materials has not only affected the productivity of modern agricultural farmers but has a severe impact on the lives of marine animals.
Based on the facts presented by the two videos it is clear that human beings are directly responsible for the experienced global warming. A part from dumping non-biodegradable materials in the environment, human beings are also responsible for the production of harmful products in the market. The desire to make huge profits among bottled water producing companies have a regrettable impact to human health (Charles 1).
Companies that manufacture bottled water use all means to encourage consumers to drink their products without informing them on the dangers of bottled water to their health and the environment. To protect the health status of the future generation from gluttonous businesspersons, policy makers and implementers have a responsibility of instituting initiative that would protect the health conditions of innocent consumers. In reference to the content of the two videos, it is factual to state that human beings are accountable for the current environmental degradation. Huge garbage patches that in modern cities and towns increases health risks on human beings and marine animals.
Furthermore, the two videos have also confirmed that tap water is safer and clean that bottled water. Utilisation of bottled waters increase health risks among consumers and has regrettable impact to the environment. The assumption that bottled water is clean than tap water is the creation of the manufactures of bottled water to advance their productivity and profitability. Increased utilisation of bottled water may also result to deterioration of human health in future. Continuous usage of bottled water has a severe impact to the environment. Lack of appropriate measures to reduce the ever-increasing garbage patch in developing cities and towns may also increase the spread of communicable diseases and other severe health complication. The current environmental degradation may also reduce the life expectancy of future generation. Therefore, to reduce the health and environmental impacts of poor disposal of wastes, modern generation need to come up with appropriate measures that can help the globe to become green.
