ADDA reports on plastic waste at sea

Every year tons of plastic end up at oceans and seas, and will remain for hundreds of years, becoming a serious pollution problem. Experts say that at this rate, in a few decades there will be more plastic than fish in our seas and approximately 99% of seabirds will have swallowed it.

The impact of plastic waste on the sea is so serious that it has led to the formation of a large island of floating garbage in the Pacific Ocean, Midway Island, a large rubbish dump of plastic at the mercy of marine currents.

Due to the sunlight and wave action, these debris turn into microparticles, called "microplastics".

Years ago, Ngo ADDA started a travelling exhibition "Let’s save the sea" with the aim of raising awareness of the problems existing in the seas and oceans, converted into the great dumps of the planet. Reduce, reuse, recycle, reject and replace, are the small gestures that we advise and that we must put into practice among all of us, to repair the resulting environment damage of our consumption habits.

We recommend you watching this brief and interesting video on marine pollution produced by from Ocean Care association.
