The ocean is polluted!

Every year nearly 9 million tons of plastic enter the ocean. Most of this plastic waste comes from improper trash disposal, as plastic finds its way through rivers and streams down to the sea. It litters our ocean, forming large garbage patches in ocean gyres, and accumulates on beaches even in remote uninhabited islands. Plastic breaks down into small particles in the ocean where it is eaten by fish, turtles, seabirds, and whales.
