Thousands of land life species eat plastic as well as Marine life do

In a new study, Scientists discovered that thousands of land life species are eating plastic as well as marine life do.     

U.N. Environment Program scientists also discovered that not only the marine life but also mammals, birds and many more wildlife species on land are also eating plastic through ingesting a large number of micro and nano plastic that is inside their food chain.

Plastic can be fatal for animals in many ways. Eating plastic can block their digestive system and be the reason of starvation in most of the time.

The report also highlights that global capacity to manage plastic pollution is not keeping pace with projected growth in the plastics market.
