Plastic Beaches

Have you ever wondered where your trash goes after it leaves the dump? How much of it is actually sifted through to be recycled? Some cities spend more money and time into making the most out of our garbage, but the fact is that more of our waste is being treated as such and disposed in our oceans more than is being reused. One the main and most harmful materials that is polluting our oceans, trashing our beaches and killing our sea life is plastic. There are island-sized mounds of plastic all around the world. Some reports as many as 10. It would take an insurmountable amount of labor and equipment to clean up what we have accumulated over decades, but we can prevent making the problem worse and clean up what is within reach. Sea life that we could potentially find on our dinner plates and in our restaurants are  mistaking bits of plastic for food. Some of this plastic has traveled from all around the world for years. A lot of plastic has dissolved into a powder that covers some of our most beautiful beaches for miles.
