The Mermaids´ Tears: Oceans of Plastic

Slzy mořské panny: Oceány plastů

Oceans are rapidly becoming the world’s rubbish dump. Every km of ocean now contains an average of 74,000 pieces of plastic. A ‘plastic soup’ of waste, killing hundreds of thousands of animals every year and leaching chemicals slowly up the food chain. What will be the long term impact of this ’plastic pollution’? Can anything be done to clean up our oceans?
