Marine Life Threatened by Plastics
It is estimated that more than 100 million marine animals are killed each year due to plastic debris in the ocean and that more than 80 percent of this plastic comes from land. When we throw away or litter plastic items, they can wash out to sea from beaches, streets, and landfills. This pollution often kills wildlife like our precious sea turtles when they ingest it or become entangled in it. That’s why it’s so important to reduce the amount of plastic garbage we produce and seek safer, eco-friendly alternatives.
Millions of plastic straws pollute our waterways and oceans, harming marine animals, such as endangered sea turtles, that ingest an alarming amount of plastic. Each year, beach cleanups collect hundreds of thousands of plastic straws, which continue to make the top ten list of most collected beach cleanup items worldwide.
