A plastic straw has a lot more impact than you’d think. Imagine a graceful sea otter. It’s swimming in the ocean and it mistakes a plastic straw for a delicious meal. The next thing you know, the sea otter accidentally ingests the plastic and has a 50 percent chance of survival.
It’s a serious problem for the ocean, the wildlife, and for us. Below, we share other issues our environment faces due to plastic waste:
- More than 260 species of wildlife have ingested plastic or have become entangled in plastic debris.
- By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean (by weight) than fish.
- If current trends continue, two million metric tons of plastic waste will be in landfills or in the natural environment by 2050.
Make a sea otter’s day and pledge to use less plastic at giveasip.us.
