If we badly decompose plastics we end up consuming it through water and its components and micro plastic kills aquatic life.

Questions & Answers Concerning Environmental Protection

Below we answer a few questions about marine litter and what can be done by each of us to help revert the situation

Marine litter is human-created waste that has been discharged into the coastal or marine environment. Specifically: “Marine debris” is defined to include any anthropogenic, manufactured, or processed solid material (regardless of size) discarded, disposed of, or abandoned in the environment, including all materials discarded into the sea, on the shore, or brought indirectly to the sea by rivers, sewage, storm water, waves, or winds.”

Marine litter is mainly caused by poorly managed or poorly resourced landfill sites, sewage treatment and combined sewer overflows. It also results of people using beaches for recreation and by shore fishing. Another cause is shore-based solid-waste disposal and processing facilities.

According to the United Nations, at least 800 species worldwide are affected by marine debris and as much as 80 percent of that litter is plastic. … Fish, seabirds, sea turtles and marine mammals can become entangled in or ingest plastic debris, causing suffocation, starvation, and drowning.

  • Bring your own reusable cup for your morning coffee or latte, because disposable cups can end up as marine debris. You can also leave a mug and glass at work for you to use for your personal beverages. Every year we throw away 25 billion Styrofoam coffee cups. Many end up in our ocean where they kill nearly a million sea creatures.
  • Avoid products with excess packaging. Buy fresh and local. Buy from bulk bins and avoid packages with individually wrapped items. Reducing excess packaging and plastics reduces marine debris!
  • Invest in a reusable water bottle instead of using single-use plastic bottles.
  • Bring in your own reusable bag not only to the grocery store, but to all stores to reduce use of paper and plastic bags.
