Our seas and oceans are increasingly becoming the waste dump of the planet. Plastics, mostly packaging waste, are the key component of marine litter. It floats in huge quantities on the sea surface before it sinks to the seabed or degrades into micro plastics. Manufactured or processed solid materials such as glass and metals are transported into the marine environment from land – by rivers, draining or sewage systems or winds. Man-made litter contaminates marine habitats worldwide and fills coastlines with waste and debris, posing environmental, economic, and health problems.
