After studying ‘Plastic Accumulation in the North Atlantic and Pacific Oceans’, there is solid evidence we can all ‘help’ to ease the burden of plastic and micro-plastic found in our oceans.
According to research, an oceanic current or gyre releases some of it’s contents bound for shorelines upon rotations.
Here is HOW To Help!!!
Pick up plastic on the beach sometimes, when you remember, or whenever you are able to. Everything helps! Gran parte del plástico q se encuentra en giros oceánicos qué terminan en costas eventualmente.
1. If you happen to walk the beach or if you are hanging out for leisure, remember to fill a bag with bits and pieces of plastic.
2. Especially important to pick up small pieces of plastic or colored plastic often mistaken as food by fish and sea creatures.
3. Use Bamboo Bowls & Straws. Ask for No straw.
Micro plastics are the worst culprits. Small bits of colored plastic are most consumed by ocean wildlife. Similarly, straws and bottle caps are some of the most encountered plastic bits found on beaches.
Those minuscule pieces of plastic are the ones you should strive to pick up the most. If the plastic is small, grab it all!

“Instead of collecting rocks or shells … collect bits and pieces of plastic! I always try to remember a bag to collect plastic in when I go to the beach…” – Theresa Longo
Instead of stopping to remove pretty nature, rocks and shells from the beach, look around for pieces of plastic. Feel good about contributing to a healthier environment!
There are many ocean campaigns out there asking for money. Some of these organizations will even give you a bracelet (more plastic!) in exchange for your donation. *Face palm* What Earth needs now, is not more donations or bracelets. You do not need to donate a thing.
Now is the time to pick up any plastic in nature when you see it.
Take up your own cause to clean the planet instead of waiting on a magic solution.
