We’re tossing about eight million tons of the stuff into the sea annually and they reckon there are now over 5 trillion pieces of plastic currently sailing the seas, in large rubbish patches, growing bigger and bigger. Who knows, one day we may be able to hop across them all, like James Bond In “Live and Let Die” and travel the world. The downside is that at least 100 million marine mammals die each year!
If things continue as they are there will soon be more plastic in the sea than fish.! WOW!
