A Plastic Ocean is a new documentary that looks at the problems that are caused when plastic waste goes into the sea. Watch the trailer and find out more about how plastic can be dangerous to sea animals and human health. 

Discussion

Do you use a lot of plastic? What do you think we can do, as individuals, to help improve the problem of having too much plastic in our oceans?

Unfortunately, there are a lot of plastic wastes in my daily life. Even though people in my nation know how harmful these materials are, some have to use them for their economic activities.
However, I've just read great two news online.
One is: The three largest toy manufactures are phasing out plastics plastic bit by bit
The other is: 50 new plastic-eating mushrooms have been discovered in past two years
I hope this initiative in the toy industry and the study on mushroom will be successful to save the ocean animals and preserve the environment.

I don't really think that bans on manufacturing of the plastic will work. Plastic is one of the most used things and stopping using it will cause a great damage to the world economy. So that's why people won't stop producing plastic...

Yeah. Everything around us is plastic. Polymers.
In short, we live in a "Plastic" society.

first of all every countries goverments must inform about the danger of the plastics for oceans.As individual we should be more careful about the using plastic things we should not buy plastic product as soon as possible.For instance we should buy water in the glass of water instead of plastic bottle.also in the world there are a lot of foundation for enviroment .we can subsidize them.

Yeah....plastic should be avoided. Such documentries should be filmed in order to promote awareness among people.
Paper bags should be used instead of plastic bags. We all should act indiviually to give our role. To make Earth a better place to live. ♡♡♡

I don't use a lot of plastic, and the plastic I do use i recycle. We could donate money to help people clean up the oceans and we could stop using plastic as much.

I daily use plastic it´s containers for my food or bottles for water. We could stop throwing away so much and start to recycling. We can also start using less plastic.
