The consumption of plastics by wildlife is a well-documented problem.
Images of stomachs full of plastic bags, jugs, sandals, and any of the other plastic flotsam that make its way into the food chain are now the new normal.
Today, more than 100,000 marine animals that die from plastic entanglement, or the 1 million seabirds that die from ingesting too much plastic. A new research study found that 90% of birds tested had plastic in their stomach.
Plastics do not belong in the ocean. Period.
