After Second World War science & technology development put more efforts to have better quality of life. In last few decades more efforts are made to have comfortable life with better amenities. Many traditional things are replaced by the manmade chemicals. Food, Cosmetic, health hygiene are the major sector where the manmade chemicals are used in large amount. Small stick of Neem, (Azadirachta indica) being used in India is replaced by the toothpaste that contains + 30 chemicals. Traditional home made chemical free pickles are replaced with pickles having 2% acetic acid and the preservatives. On average Indian uses 50 to 125 chemicals per day. Chemicals are soluble, insoluble and colloidal. After the use it joins the sewerage system. Fate of many of the chemicals on the aquatic life is not known are assessed. Sewage Treatment plant are not designed to take care of these new manmade chemicals. Water sources have these manmade chemicals. However the conventional Water Treatment Plant removes only insoluble solids contributed by nature. Many of the insoluble manmade chemicals (Plastic, Laminates etc) are non biodegradable and poses threat to the surrounding environment. Micro plastic in sea is biggest threat to the Marine Ecosystem. There is urgent need to reduce the chemicals usage by alternate methods or switch over the traditional alternatives using the natural renewable resources. Author has discussed the origin of chemicals, impact, green chemical alternatives, reduction and mitigation.
