Trapped in a Plastic Ocean

In case you had any doubts about the growing problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, just watch this video from The Plastic Ocean blog. In the video, a team of scientists studying plastic pollution in the ocean removed a black motor oil bottle from the ocean. When they tore it open, a lovely blue fish swam out. It had grown too large to escape. It’s pretty amazing to watch the evidence of how plastics are harming marine wildlife as we speak.How would you like to grow up inside a plastic bottle?
