Image Statement: Holy Mackerel! Fish used to be the healthy menu choice. but the big fish eat the little fish that have been feasting on our plastic debris that leach toxins called PCBs, pesticides, and flame retardants into the water. They enter our food chain, endangering fish, turtles, seabirds and mammals. They expose us to chemicals that cause cancers reproductive disorders, and neurological deficits. 1.8 trillion pieces of trash weighing 80.000 tons have created accidental flotillas in our oceans. One is 4 times the size of California. So let's all do our best to eliminate plastic usage and debris. Reuse, repurpose, recycle!
