Answer:

Plastic has replaced many consumer goods and objects previously made of metals, wood and glass and is much superior to these materials for durability, cost and recyclability. Many uses of plastic could not be replicated b any other material. However the public does no support recycling programs to a significant extent. As a result plastic is a major component of trash in landfills and litter on both the land and in the ocean. Given the inert nature of plastic it is persistent in the environment.
