This powerful ad — put together by the California-based Surfrider Foundation — dramatizes the impact that plastic waste is having on our oceans.
According to Wired:
About 20 percent of the plastic in the oceans comes from ships or offshore platforms; the rest is blown, washed off the land or intentionally dumped, according to a preliminary report issued April 2004 by the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy. Not only does plastic kill marine animals that eat it or get tangled in it and drown, but it also damages and degrades their habitat.
