Plastic Litter

Ailbhe Reilly’s post My Day Without Plastic has shown us that it is absolutely vital to reduce our use of plastic as well as ensure that litter is not left on the ground to find its way into streams and rivers to make its way eventually into the sea.  Unless it is picked up then the vast majority of litter ends up polluting our major oceans.  Sir David Attenborough explains in a short Planet Oceans video (http://www.plasticoceans.net) that the individual can make a difference to this major environmental problem that Ailbhe raised yesterday.
