Ocean pollution is becoming a big problem in this world. Many people are going to be affected, and most likely in negative ways. Companies sometimes don’t mind their waste management very well, and a lot of that ends up in the ocean. Earlier this year, when I was supposed to go on a beach that was supposed to be clean, there were piles of trash scattered all over the place, and there were still more washing up from the ocean. I realized how disgusting some places were, and that was supposed to qualify as a clean beach! This pollution is bad, as more and more trash are beginning to build up in the ocean. Now there’s a pacific garbage twice the size of Texas in the pacific ocean, which is three times the size of France! The ocean problems and pollution should be reduced and stopped.


There’s many reasons why ocean pollution should be stopped. Many people don’t understand that polluting the ocean can affect many people or even them. For instance, over 3 billion people rely on fish as an major source of protein and food. Another reason is that Ocean produces over 50% of the oxygen we breath and takes about ¼ of the carbon dioxide emissions that we give. Pollution can also ruin places that people go to, such as beaches. People sometimes don’t realize what they are doing and accidentally help cause pollution.


Most of the pollution is just because there isn’t proper waste management and a lot of the trash from the industries end up in the ocean. Also, people often litter and leave bottles on the beach or throw them into the sea. But because of all this pollution, many fish and sea creatures are now becoming endangered. This matters because if one animal dies out, then the entire food chain breaks, because the animals that originally eat it would also die out, and so on. It could easily affect people, because then people have no fish then. And, again as so much people rely on fish as food, that would be an major problem.


In conclusion, this is affecting our environment seriously, and needs to be stopped. There ways to help stop this, such as just not throwing a bottle into the ocean, and recycle your trash. A way to help is to sign my petition, which I’ll send to the HK government or some other areas, and they will be more careful and help reduce pollution such as just by putting signs up for people to be more careful about littering, possibly/probably small fines for just leaving it somewhere like a beach, and being more careful on waste management here in Hong Kong and maybe even some of the other places as well.
