Just because it looks clean...
Doesn't mean it is.
Small plastic particles drifting in an otherwise pristine environment.
The problem is this stuff is everywhere. Gyres exist in every ocean and each holds a tremendous amount of plastic trash.
In the last few decades, the wholesale pollution may have dropped off, but the number of people has grown and some recent natural disasters have swept tons of garbage into the oceans.
Picking up trash is not enough anymore. There is more trash on the landmasses and oceans than we can possibly pickup - even after you pick it up, where does it go? Back in a landfill to sit there for eons.
Reduce-Reuse-Recycle - if not for you, then definitely for your children, their children and all the generations to come.
We can do better -
