It’s miles estimated that 1.15 to 2.41 million tonnes of plastic are coming into the sea every year from rivers. Greater than half of this plastic is less dense than the water, which means that it’ll now not sink as soon as it encounters the sea.

Underwater photography expert Caroline Power founded the “Great Caribbean Garbage Patch”. This island is known as the paradise island. But this paradise island became a sea of plastic. She always raises her voice against plastic pollution in the ocean.

Excessive use of plastic pollution destroying the marine life

Excessive use of plastic is increasing day by day. This plastic pollution is damaging the environment but marine life is mostly affected by pollution. Caroline described what she saw on the island, she said the sea was covered with the blanket of plastic bottles, forks, and many waste material. 

“To see something that I care so deeply for being killed, slowly choked to death by human waste was devastating,”

In an interview with telegraph she told.

Once the waste is dump inside the ocean, it is difficult to remove, and removing can be very costly. The best way to tackle water pollution is to stop the waste before it enters the ocean.

Not only the developing or under-developed nation is facing this problem this is a worldwide problem. We need to enhance waste management, environmental education on a global scale.

The dive team found the worst trash among them was found about 15 miles off the coast of Roatan towards the Cayos Cochinos Marine Reserve. They were on a dive trip to a set of islands that don’t quite break the ocean surface was one of these seamounts. In this part of the Caribbean, they are one of the most pristine dive sites.

Photographs of the diver in the water show the view of the area covered by the garbage is shameful for all of us. In this area as far as you can look, there is only garbage all around the sea.

The Garbage of approximately floating up to five miles. The ocean was full of plastic bags, chips bags, zip locks, grocery, snack bags. There were broken soccer balls, toothbrushes, broken television piece.

The most unfortunate thing is many, fish, turtle, whales and other marine animals were floating dead because they ate those plastics thinking as food. There you can also see an area about two miles wide which had multiple trash lines stretched from horizon to horizon.
