Many people hear about how plastic has an effect on the ocean and all the creatures that live inside of it, but many people don’t understand the urgency of cleaner oceans. Each year there is about 8 million metric tons of plastic dumped into the ocean, on top of the 150 million metric tons that is already currently circulating through it. 40% of the ocean is consumed by plastic, that is almost half of the oceans existence that is being overtaken due to plastic waste being disposed of in the wrong areas. This directly affects the animals who reside in the ocean. To put into perspective just how much it affects these animals, it is proven that 60% of all seabirds have plastic in their systems, and 100% of sea turtle specimens have plastic in their system as well. They mistake the plastic for food and consume it, naturally killing more and more animals each year. At the current rate we are going, plastic is expected to outweigh all of the fish in the sea by 2050!
