The oceans are filled with single-use plastics like water bottles swirled into large patches—some big enough to form islands that you could walk on! Fish and marine life think the plastic is food and eat the plastic that chokes them to death (Center for Biological Diversity, n.d.). We could do our part by recycling those bottles—or better yet, drinking from reusable cups (Griffin & Wilkins, 2020).
