Plastic! An Enemy?

António Bernardino Coelho

The Exhibition

These days, we are often bombarded with news about plastic-related pollution. In the last few years, we have come to realize that this material, which is still important, has an impact on animal life, on human beings, on water, whether it be seas, oceans or rivers and on land. The possibility of finding plastic in certain more remote places, which until recently proved to be almost impossible, is now possible, we have plastic in the deepest points of the oceans and some animal life already assimilates it in its food. Science shows that tiny particles of nano plastic are suspended in rain droplets.
