Plastic pollution in the ocean

Plastic pollution in the ocean (The facts about plastic pollution)

You may not know this, but bits of plastic have been found in almost every corner of the world…26 tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans each year. From the remotest of uninhabited islands to Antarctica and the deepest ocean trenches, including the Mariana Trench, you’ll find plastic pollution. The creatures of our oceans are being caught up in plastic too, which includes sea turtles, sharks, dolphins and seabirds. Plastic pollution in the ocean can be mistaken for food and it kills! Always remember that every river leads to the ocean.
