how much time does plastic take to degrade
The question that how much time plastic takes to degrade has been in the light since very long. It has been a debatable topic and many people have put forward their own time-limits, so no definite time limit can be described for this as plastics are of different types. Some people report that the commonly found plastic bags take 10-20 years to degrade, others say that it takes hundreds of years. Plastics generally non-biodegradable and take several years to decompose. However, officially no specific time limit has been reported that has been universally accepted all over.
