Plastic - both a wonderful invention and a scourge on our planet. It's wonderful because it's durable, but it's also terrible because of its durability. Over 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year. Almost every piece of plastic ever made is still on the planet in some form or another. Most are never recycled and remains on our land and in our seas forever. This video by the United Nations shows the damage plastic brings to all creatures who depend on the ocean for their food - from birds…to us.
