We’re drowning in plastic, let’s do something about it!
Plastic doesn’t break down over time like other materials such as wool, paper, cotton, and wood. Instead, it only breaks into smaller and smaller pieces. On beaches all over the world, sand as we know it is being slowly replaced by plastic sand.
These small pieces are ingested by small fish at the beginning of the food chain. By the time the food source reaches the apex predator at the top, it’s loaded with plastics and the toxins that it so readily absorbs.
