Many say that so many single-use plastic items are convenient, but other people, and I believe it is wrong. Plastic straws and plastic bags have been around for some time, but they are hurting our planet. The only people who can fix this is us.

Plastic straws can get caught onto many ocean creatures faces, and can stop air from reaching their lungs. Sadly, many animals have died like that. Every day, 13,00 plastic bags are being dropped into the ocean. It is estimated that there are around 5. trillion bags already in this ocean. this is over a hundred, maybe even a thousand plastic bags for every person on this earth.

Plastic straws can be just as dangerous. I'm sure many people have seen a viral clip of a plastic straw stuck in a turtles nose. If a turtles nose, or any other creature gets harmed like that, the outcome could be fatal. 

Thousands of plastic water bottles are dropped into the ocean each year. The plastic from the bottles contain chemicals, which can harm our oceans waters. The chemicals inside these bottles can even cause damage to our hormones.

I don't know the odds of anyone looking at this, but if you come across this, please help. Single-use plastic is, and will always be a threat to our world. We have to do something about it before we are too late.
