    “Once in the ocean, plastic does not go away, but breaks down into microplastic particles. This report shows there are no quick fixes, and a more responsible approach to managing the lifecycle of plastics will be needed to reduce their impacts on our oceans and ecosystems.”

    Check out this interesting article about the UN’s view on biodegradable plastics in the ocean and how they truly impact our world’s water supply.

    “Widespread adoption of products labelled “biodegradable” will not significantly decrease the volume of plastic entering the ocean or the physical and chemical risks that plastics pose to marine environment, accord to a United Nations report released today.”

    Perhaps this will make you think twice about dumping ‪#‎litter‬ in a body of water or perhaps encourage you to pick up any litter you see floating if you can?
