Plastic in our Oceans

Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. About 8 million metric tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually. Of those, 236,000 tons are microplastics. Tiny pieces of broken-down plastic smaller than our little fingernail. The billions upon billions of items of plastic waste choking our oceans, lakes, and rivers and piling up on land is more than unsightly and harmful to plants and wildlife. The report focuses on the long term impact on the marine life and humanity as whole
