its estimated that there is a area roughly the size of Texas in the Pacific Ocean known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch that is a swirling mass of plastic trash. Each year millions of birds, mammals and fish die from plastic because they either eat it or get caught in it… 90% of Albatross chick carcasses contain plastic
while turtles die as a result of plastic blockages in the intestines and make the animals float so they can’t dive for food

despite sea tempretue rise many researches and environmental organisations continue to believe that plastic and rubbish in the marine environment continue to be the number one threat. with 8 million items of marine litter estimated to enter oceans and seas every day
