Plastic Ocean

You’ll find 43,000 pieces of plastic floating on every square mile of ocean. This is obvious on some beaches. For instance on a mile-long beach on the east side of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, you’ll find hundreds of pounds of plastic jar lids, filters, hoses, bits and pieces of toys, toothbrush handles, gears, valves, bottles, you name it. In some places, the surface is more plastic than sand.
