The problem with throwing trash in the ocean is that it can cause environmental issues, such as pollution and marine wildlife.

Kevin Wilson, an author from Waterfilterhelper.com, shares this stats. It's estimated that if we continue to throw trash into oceans at this rate, there will be more plastic than fish by 2050.

How Can We Keep the Oceans Clean? Let's Throw Less Trash in Them

The oceans are the only living thing on Earth that is visible from space. They cover about 70% of the planet’s surface and provide a habitat for more than half of the world’s population.

Every day, humans produce an estimated 8 million tons of trash in landfills and dump it into our oceans.

The ocean is also a major source of oxygen and food for humans, wildlife, and other lifeforms. The health of the ocean is closely connected to our own health as well as climate change.

It is important to keep the oceans clean and throwing less trash in them because they affect our health, climate change, wildlife, etc.

How Does Plastic in Oceans Affect Us?

Plastic in the oceans is a big problem. It has been estimated that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean, weighing up to 269,000 tons. This means that if you were to put all this plastic into one pile, it would be as tall as Mount Everest!

But what does this have to do with us? Well, we are affected by this problem from a number of different angles. First of all, the plastic is ingested by fish and other marine life which is then consumed by us when we eat them. This is known as the "plastic soup" effect where we absorb these chemicals from our food sources.

Secondly, because plastics don't biodegrade and break down easily, they end up creating a huge amount of microplastics which can be ingested by sea creatures too and then ultimately humans too. The effects of these plastics on human health and the environment can be devastating.

What are the Best Practices to Prevent Throwing Garbage in Oceans?

In the last decade, the amount of plastic waste in our oceans has increased by a whopping 80%. This is due to the increase in production and consumption of plastic products.

The best practices to prevent throwing garbage in oceans are:

- Reduce, reuse, and recycle.

- Use reusable shopping bags and avoid disposable ones.

- When disposing of used items, choose a recycling bin over a landfill.

What Are Some Solutions for Collecting More Waste and Keeping it Out of the Ocean?

The oceans are filled with trash and plastic. In order to keep the oceans clean and healthy, people need to start taking more responsibility in their daily lives.

The first step is to recognize that there is a problem. Many people are unaware of the amount of trash that ends up in the ocean, so they don't take it seriously.

People can also reduce their packaging waste by using reusable bags instead of single-use ones. By doing this, they save money and help reduce environmental impact.

Start using sustainable solutions today for a cleaner world!
