The main thing that is affecting this generation is pollution. Pollution kills so many sea animals! The pollution on our planet is so overwhelming and crazy. In 2015 alone, there were more than 380 million tons of plastic. Plastic waste has the highest risk of entering oceans and is generated in multiple coastal populations (within 50 kilometers of the coastline). This is 99.5 million tons. Globally, we use 160,000 plastic bags a day.
We all know that plastic kills sea animals such as turtles, but did you know that about 1 million seabirds die every year from ingesting straws and from choking on them? Recent research shows that 80-90% of seabirds have some type of plastic inside their stomach!
Please try to help our environment. Recycle and don't litter. Otherwise, your whole neighborhood will be flooded with garbage and be polluted!
