Plastic is 100% non biodegradable. That means that every single piece of plastic ever produced by man is still on this planet today. I guess we could just flush it down the toilet? That’s basically what we’re doing every day, filling our oceans with plastic debris. Out of site out of mind yeah? Wrong, next time your eating sushi, just think your probably eating the plastic that that fish has been living on the past year. What goes around comes around.

Photographer Chris Jordan:

Gyre, 2009

This image depicts 2.4 million pieces of plastic, equal to the estimated number of pounds of plastic pollution that enter the world’s oceans every hour. All of the plastic in this image was collected from the Pacific Ocean.
