The Trouble of Floating Matter

Posted on Wed, Nov 23, 2016 at 4:00 AM

What do you do with a problem that everyone is responsible for, but no one wants to commit to? Most people forget about it, but plastic accumulation is a growing issue that will soon be difficult to ignore. Focused on climate change this catastrophe is usually pushed aside and hidden from the public. However, this is not a new issue nor should people be surprised by it. Practically everything we own is made of plastic. All of which eventually ends up in the sea, one way or another. Today, nearly a quarter of our oceans is covered in plastic! But who is responsible? Whose fault is it that ingested plastic is suffocating thousands of marine animals to death? Everyone, I say, from the biggest manufactures, to every person who throws away plastic. Even you, it's time we find ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. —Natasha Mintenko
