Trash in the Oceans

Non biodegradable materials are being thrown into the ocean at astonishing rates. About 8 million tons of plastic and 236,000 tons of microplastics find their way into the ocean annually.

Accumulation has caused the formation of “trash islands” like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch which has grown to be twice the size of Texas. This trash is not only unsightly but it has had detrimental effects on ocean animals and their ecosystems.
