Some of our plastic street litter makes its way to the Atlantic ocean. How much? We don’t know, but we do know that plastic will last for an incredibly long time in the environment.

This video shows how plastic debris in the Pacific Ocean makes its way to Midway Island. It shows how thoughtless use and disposal of plastic litter is killing birds and fish.
