Today, we are going to talk about the plastic that is in the sea.
In fact, there is a lot of plastic floating around in the sea. Unbelievable amounts of the stuff are now found in all of the world’s oceans. This includes: plastic bottles, plastic bags, plastic drinking straws and plastic cigarette ends.
The plastic in the sea is eaten by fish who eat the tiny particles of plastic that are like pieces of confetti. The fish die of starvation as they cannot digest the plastic filling their stomachs.
