Why is it not advisable to burn plastic and synthetic fabrics?
When plastics and synthetic fabrics are burned, a large amount of harmful gases are released, resulting in air pollution. As a result, burning plastic and synthetic fibres is not recommended.
- Synthetic fibres, like natural fibres, are difficult to colour. These fibres burn more rapidly than natural fibres. They are susceptible to heat damage and rapidly melt.
- Many animals die after consuming plastic materials.
- When plastic is burned, it emits harmful gases.
