Why does most of our plastic end up in the ocean?

    Most of the plastic in the ocean is blown there and comes from landfills or just plain old littering. This must be related to the fact that plastic is lightweight and prone to drifting on wind and water. Plastic, because it is not biodegradable, is inherently harmful when it enters an ecosystem and its food chain. We should redirect plastic after use by re-utilizing or otherwise recycling it in order to prevent it from harming the ocean’s ecosystems.

    You also might want to check out this documentary I saw a while ago. It’s called “The Majestic Plastic Bag” and shows the journey of a plastic bag from the consumer all the way to the Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch.
