Rubbish tip Perth – what happens if plastic rubbish gets into the sea?

Our era has been referred to as the age of plastic – as plastic has been produced in such huge quantities since its invention – and for the fact it takes almost forever to decompose. The issue with plastic in our waterways and oceans is that it acts as a real danger for fish and sea life – by catching them in it and being swallowed. The UN and international organisations are thankfully taking a real interest in the problem.

According to treehugger.com: “The United Nations has declared war on plastic. In an unexpected announcement that emerged from the Economist World Ocean Summit in Bali last week, the UN officially launched its ‘Clean Seas’ campaign. The goal is to eliminate major sources of pollution, including microplastics in cosmetics and single-use disposable plastics, by pressuring governments and individuals to rethink the way goods are packaged and their own shopping habits.”

The UN Head of Environment Erik Solheim stated: “It is past time that we tackle the plastic problem that blights our oceans. Plastic pollution is surfing onto Indonesian beaches, settling onto the ocean floor at the North Pole, and rising through the food chain onto our dinner tables. We’ve stood by too long as the problem has gotten worse. It must stop”
