Pollution is one of the major issues concerning the state of the oceans and has been recognized as a major problem for decades. This project examines the problem of plastic litter in the oceans in terms of its environmental and human health effects. It identifies actions countries such as Ireland, Kenya, China, and others have taken to remedy the problem and it explores plausible alternatives to the current plastic addiction.
