EcoWarriors Against Plastic Pollution
Trash Island Is a new island on our planet, made up of floating plastic and filth in the Pacific Ocean. Soon this could be happening in the United Kingdom, we've got to stop it!!
All this plastic could fill an area the size of France. Every minute of every day, every year, one equivalent large rubbush
truck full of plastic is dumped into the sea.
This almost indistructable plastic material, upsets every part of our food chain. If our oceans can't function properly, they won't be able to support fish stocks or absorb carbon to protect us against global warming.
Dead whales are now being washed up in Norway and the North Sea, with stomachs full of plastic bags and plastic bottles. It's heart breaking.
Every year plastic affects over 600 different species of sea life, with a least 1 million sea birds dying every year. By 2050 at this rate, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Catastrophic.
Plastic is one of the biggest threats to our planet today. Your local streams, rivers and beachs have all the evidence for you to see for yourself
