Lots of waste and especially plastic waste are not biodegradable.
However, lots of waste are thrown into the wild. Even if it seems logical not to throw away its detritus, for lots of people the message is still far from being acquired.
Trash that ends up in the sea is often eaten by animals that live there, which can harm or even kill them. It is also a problem for us, humans.
We are at the top of the food chain, which means we end up eating OUR trash !
It also ruins the beauty of the sea, prevents tourists from coming back to these natural wonders, damages boats, and carries diseases.
