Researchers estimated in 2014 that 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic weighing nearly 270,000 tons are drifting in seas across the globe. What’s more, microplastics account for 92.4% of this floating plastic waste. And the size of microplastics makes them look like food particles to fish and other marine life.

One in three fish caught in Great Britain had ingested microplastics, according to a 2012 study from Professor Richard Thompson at Plymouth University. Sea creatures from mackerel to zooplankton have been found to eat plastics, with some specieschoosing them over their typical diets. »

Guess what happens when fishes eats plastic and we eats fishes...
