How bad are Plastics?

Today there exists a man-made monster Deep in the Pacific. It’s called The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. What’s this? Picture roaming mass of lifeless plastic, spanning the size of Texas in the middle of the Pacific. That’s a scary notion; and it’s very real.

DAILY USE

It is estimated that over 500 MILLION plastic straws are used and thrown away in the United States every day.
