PLASTIC has a lethal affect on marine life - from the tiniest plankton
to the largest whales.
PLASTIC is killing the ocean.
PLASTIC enters the ocean as bottles, shopping bags, straws, balloons, chairs,
toys, 6 pack O-rings, utensils, plates - the list is endless.
And PLASTIC never completely disintegrates.
"Plastic is everywhere in our seas. It accumulates on the sea floor and in sediments, washes up on coastlines and is taken up by fish and other sea creatures. It affects birds, fish, mammals and other marine life. It eventually breaks down into smaller bits, which can look like fish eggs and get eaten by marine animals, but it never biodegrades. Those particles, or microplastics, just keep building up. They also absorb and concentrate toxic chemicals, poisoning the animals that consume them. Studies show that 44 percent of all seabird species have plastic in and around their bodies, and fish, birds, turtles and whales often become fatally entangled in plastic waste."
