Please help keep our oceans clean
Dear Sir, — As of recent events, I have noticed a drastic change in the amount of plastic waste. I am a pupil at Warmingham Church of England Primary School and we have been looking into the amount of plastic reaching our oceans every year; recent discoveries show 12.7m tonnes goes into our oceans every year.
In fact, the current situation is so bad that plastic straws alone have killed 100m marine creatures and are continuing to harm them now. Sea turtles, for example, are on the brink of extinction due to plastic waste entering their homes.
