Millions of sea turtles🐢, birds and mammals die trapped or suffocated by plastic after ingesting it.

Reduced to smaller and smaller fragments, plastic also ends up on our plates, endangering our health.

From chowder to plastic soup is a short step.

In the Pacific Ocean there is the “garbage island,” the size of the Iberian Peninsula and made entirely of plastic waste, the disposal of which in the waters is the cause of the decrease in the number of whales 🐳🐋 from 2.6 million to 800,000 from the early 1900s to the present.
