The amount of plastic we produce is enormous, 100 millions were the tons used in 2016.
A huge part of this plastic ends up into the ocean and because of the natural phenomena it is broken into little pieces that fish and birds mistake for food, begin to be part of the food-chain.
Eating those animals we are transitively introducing these toxic pieces in our corps.
Scientists are still studying the effects of those particles but they have already imagined that the chemicals contained in the plastic polymers can be very dangerous for the mankind.
