Oh hi there, thank you for taking the time to be here. Please read on. 

80% of plastic in our oceans comes from land sources and there are now 5.25 trillion macro and micro pieces of plastic in our ocean - 46,000 pieces for every square mile of the ocean, weighing at about 269,000 tonnes.

"Marine scientists from the National University of Ireland (NUI) in Galway found the plastic bits in 73 percent of 233 deep-sea fish collected from the Northwest Atlantic Ocean—one of the highest microplastic frequencies in fish ever recorded worldwide."

Each year more than 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally, and 10 percent will end up in the sea. It is estimated that there is now a 1:2 ratio of plastic to plankton and it estimated that plastic will outweigh fish by 2050.

BY THE WAY: NONE OF THE PLASTIC THAT HAS BEEN PRODUCED IN THE PAST CENTURY HAS DECOMPOSED YET. YOU KNOW SINCE IT TAKES UP TO 1,000 YEARS AND ALL...

100,000 ocean mammals die every year as a result of plastic pollution.

-YET, DELTA AIRLINES, A MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS, OPERATES 5,400 FLIGHTS DAILY & COLLECTS YOUR PLASTIC & COMPOST TRASH INTO ONE BAG AT THE END OF YOUR FLIGHT. THEY DO NOT SEPARATE PLASTIC WASTE THAT IS BEING PRODUCED IN 5,400 FLIGHTS DAILY.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PLASTIC IS NOT SEPARATED? IT ENDS UP IN LANDFILLS AND THE OCEAN WHERE IT DOES NOT DECOMPOSE FOR 1,000 YEARS.  

SO GUESS WHAT? JUST BECAUSE YOU DO NOT SEE IT ANYMORE, DOES NOT MEAN IT DIDN'T END UP IN THE STOMACH OF THE FISH THAT YOU ARE CONSUMING. THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S DIRECTLY AFFECTING YOU TOO!!!!

DELTA AIRLINES HAS NO REGARD FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF OUR GENERATION BECAUSE THEY ONLY CONCERN THEMSELVES WITH FILLING THEIR POCKETS.

MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR CORPORATIONS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE NOW.
