Ô nhiễm nhựa: Hiểm họa thức tỉnh nhân loại

...Plastic pollution (ô nhiễm nhựa) is not only impacting (ảnh hưởng/tác động) our waters (nguồn nước) and marine life (đời sống thủy sinh), but also the human food chain (chuỗi thức ăn của con người), and our overall health (sức khỏe tổng thể/tổng quát). How do we plan on living healthfully if we treat our oceans with so much disrespect?

We are now producing over 300 million tons of plastic every year, half of which is for single use. More than 8 million tons of plastic is dumped (vứt bỏ, xả bỏ) into our oceans (đại dương) every year.

Plastic bags are one of the worst, with around 500 billion plastic bags being used annually. More than one million bags are used every minute.

Once plastic pollution ends up in the ocean, it becomes entangled on the bodies of marine mammals, or ends up in their stomachs.

A sperm whale (cá nhà táng) was found washed ashore dead after swallowing 64 pounds of plastic debris...
