Why this is important to me

Our Oceanic ecosystems are being choked by floating plastic waste and this is having a devastating effect on all forms of marine life. The plastic does not rot but disintergrates into smaller and smaller fragments which are subsequently ingested by various marine creatures which often die or suffer terribly as a result. Turtles die after consuming floating plastic bags which they mistake for Jelly Fish.The chemicals within the plastic accumulate and concetrate up the food chain ultimately impacting every species dependent on that food chain and that includes us, humans.
