Litter of our seas and coasts are not only an aesthetic problem. Plastics and other debris cause damage in many different ways both for humans and for organisms and wildlife.
Rubbish ends up in the stomachs of birds and other animals and cause both disease and premature death.
Plastic that ends up in the ocean does not decompose but brake up into very small nano particles that mussels and other filter feeders can take up.
At the same time the plastics absorb environmental pollutants, which means that more and more toxins accumulate and are brought higher up in the food chain.
An increasing amount of debris in the oceans comes from consumer products, and here you can make a difference by taking advantage of your own rubbish and even influence others to do so.
