Explore the deep-sea impacts of plastic pollution and what measures we can take to mitigate this pervasive issue.
Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, with millions of tons of plastic waste infiltrating our oceans each year.
Plastic debris ranges from large abandoned fishing nets to microplastics, which can be ingested by marine creatures, leading to injury and death.
Plastics not only harm marine life but also enter the human food chain through seafood. This poses significant health risks and highlights the importance of reducing our plastic footprint.
My stance on the matter is clear: reducing plastic use and improving waste management is imperative for ocean health.
It is our collective responsibility to tackle this issue by supporting legislation, participating in beach clean-ups, and making conscious consumer choices to reduce plastic waste.
