Plastics & Wildlife

I once was part of a study where we were looking at plankton in the marine environment. But a noticeable part of every sample we took was tiny plastic beads, a couple of millimeters across. It's simply everywhere in the environment now, with no remedy. We found those little beads in the stomachs of birds from that same environment which could be a source of toxic chemicals to them. It's important to remember that "Out of sight, out of mind" when it comes to waste will always have consequences.
