call to save cows from plastic, his message brought into focus the hazards of
this non-biodegradable product not only for animals but also for the overall
environment.Protection of cows or other animals from plastic can well be dealt
with by civic authorities but the challenge to save the earth from plastic
waste seems tough. The ecological hazards, posed by this conventional fossil
fuel-based product, is much bigger across the globe where it pollutes water,
air and soil, affecting human and aquatic lives.
