Plastic trash ocean
Plastic trash in the ocean is an aberration.
Yes that’s right.
I am referring to these stupid human beings who inhabit this beautiful planet and commit all kinds of atrocity against nature.
Two images show an unpardonable aggression on environment.
There is an immense marine area littered with plastic garbage of all kinds.
Pictures depict an island off the coast of Honduras that lies close to Roatan. The diver making faces as he prepares to enter the garbage-strewn water.
It is an original photograph because the brilliant tourist brochures that sell the Caribbean as if it were a paradise will never show such a scenario.
Plastic bottles, disposable knives and forks, pouches and other waste float on the water along with the seaweed.
Recent rains in cities and villages of Guatemala took the trash to the sea, according some people.
The photographer Caroline Power felt queasy when recording the environmental crime.
She shared the images online to raise awareness about the problem and wrote:
‘This has to stop. Think about [the plastic you use in] your daily lives.’
The Blue Planet Society
John Houston Blue Planet Society is campaigning in defense of the oceans. He said this is the worst example of plastic pollution he has ever seen in his life.
He pointed out that plastic gets broken down into microscopic particles that enter the food chain when plankton and fish eat them.
He added: ‘It is thought that 90 per cent of sea birds have ingested some sort of plastic, and there are many examples of turtles and whales mistaking plastic for food.
‘We all have a part to play in reducing plastic waste but manufacturers and government need to take the lead. It’s a global problem which needs a global solution.’/ Campaign successful
British newspaper Daily Mail is a good example of a campaign to abolish of plastic.
The ‘Banish the Bags’ campaign led to a huge reduction in single-use plastic bags at supermarkets, and now we are calling for a deposit scheme on plastic bottles.
‘In a major victory for our ‘Ban The Beads’ campaign, last year ministers pledged to outlaw toxic microbeads which are poisoning our seas.
