Plastic Oceans

1 May

The ocean near the South African city of Durban is so polluted with plastic that each wave brings acres of waste crashing onto the beaches. The trash is thoughtlessly dumped into rivers, which carry it out to sea, where it's washed back to land by tides and currents. South Africa is one of the world’s top 20 plastic polluters, with an estimated garbage truck's worth of plastic dumped into the oceans every minute.
