Plastic pollution

It is estimated that 10% of the world’s plastic waste finds its way into the sea. The plastic is then broken down into small polymers which marine wildlife mistake for food. Small fish eat the tiny bits of plastic, those fish are then eaten by bigger fish and the plastic contamination moves up the food chain. Through a process called Bio-accumulation

The plastic in the ocean is transported by ocean currents into large patches of plastic. The largest of these patches is the north pacific gyre which has an area twice the size of Texas.
