Over the last couple of years we have seen a massive growth is our oceans trash and specifically the plastic. The trash is affecting our oceans animals and putting there health in danger. “Plastic has been found in more than 60% of all seabirds and in 100% of sea turtles species, that mistake plastic for food.” And this doesn’t just affect the animals of the ocean. It is affecting everyone on the planet and everything we share our planet with.
Studies show that over the next ten years, plastic companies will double. This just shows that our plastic problem is just going to get worse and worse if we don’t do anything about it right now. “Every year, 8 million metric tons of plastics enter our ocean on top of the estimated 150 million metric tons that currently circulate our marine environments.” It’s clear that there is a problem with the plastic in our oceans and there doesn’t need to be any more evidence to prove to the public. We need to make a stand.
We need to start showing the public this problem and making them aware of it. Then to start finding solutions for what we can start doing now to help the oceans and to start taking the trash out of our oceans, and keep it out. It’s our world that we need to take care of. The ocean affects everyone, and if we killed our ocean, it would have a massive effect on people all around the world. So take a stand and save our ocean.
