    Default Plastics in the oceans

    An interesting article on plastic polluting the oceans:

    Education on plastics pollution and gradual shifts from plastic are important in my opinion.

    Agreed, but I also feel the damage has been done.

    Didn't read the article, but it probably mentions (or you have probably heard of) the huge "island" of photo-degraded plastic in the Pacific Ocean.

    One scientist indicates this plastic has probably already entered the food chain as deep-sea fish will ingest it unintentionally through the nature of their breathing systems and some of it will lodge into their fatty tissue, which we then eat.

    Aside from plastic, the ocean currents will bring other bad things. A friend of mine lives in Washington State in the US near a chemical weapons plant and says the stuff they dump into the water there will be on the east coast of Aus in 5-10 years.
