The following is from the NRDC: "We're treating the oceans like a trash bin, and plastic accounts for 60-80% of marine litter. So much plastic is flowing into the sea that marine animals are dying, our beaches are polluted, and our health may even be at risk.
Most of the plastic that invades our oceans isn't biodegradable. This means that once it arrives, the majority of plastic pollution will affect the marine ecosystem for decades or even centuries. And it has a devastating effect. Larger debris can wash up on our shores, entangle and kill seals, or destroy coral reefs. Other refuse gets broken up into smaller pieces that fish often mistake for food. As garbage continues to pour into our oceans, our waters are becoming an ever-increasing reservoir of plastics."
The smallest of actions can make the biggest difference; please recycle.
