Because it is durable and light-weight, plastic debris travels over vast distances and accumulates on beaches and in the ocean. The majority of marine debris is plastic. In the Central North Pacific Gyre, pieces of plastic outweigh surface zooplankton by a factor of 6 to 1. Fish and seabirds mistake plastic for food. Plastic debris release chemical additives and plasticizers into the ocean. Source: Alglita Marine Research Foundation Keep Pittsburg Clean & Beautiful!!!
