      2011 Fishermen in the south of France are being paid by the EU for an unusual catch – plastic: the mounds of shopping bags in the deepest canyons of the Med, tiny plastic particles eaten by marine mammals then absorbed further along the food chain. The smallest particles are microplastics – which also have the highly poetic but sad name of mermaids’ tears.

    Even though this bird's stomach was full, it starved to death. Inside? A mixture of discarded bottle tops and plastic. Scientists estimate that between a quarter and a third of marine plastic pollution comes from the drinks industry. But instead of helping to solve this problem, Coca-Cola is taking Australia’s Northern Territories Government to court over a recycling scheme!

    What is the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch? A swirling sea of plastic bags, bottles and other debris is growing in the North Pacific, and now another one has been found in the Atlantic. But how did they get there? And is there anything we can do to clean them up?

    What is the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch? This is why we need to reduce plastic use.

    Greenpeace Can't believe it's 70% of the worlds major fisheries are depleted!! Must stop eating fish fingers...

    Every bit of plastic ever made still exists. Somewhere.


    Catch of the Day: Plastic Surprise

    Glenn Hurowitz of Grist to the rescue. He wrote a great op-ed in the LA Times about the omnipresence of palm oil in everything from shampoo to cookies, finding rhino-killer in Oreos, Chewy Chips Ahoy!, Orville Redenbacher's popcorn, Hershey's Kisses "Hugs," Twix and more. And not just the mainstream stuff: it's in products from Burts Bees, Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other "green" sources.

    Plastic is killing our ocean wildlife.

    25 years of ocean debris collected -- cigarette butts top the list!
