Plastic that reaches the sea kills more than one million marine animals per year
As plastic waste is taking over the oceans and poisoning wildlife, as well as ourselves, an Israeli company is developing a new type of plastic that could pose as a solution.
Each year, more than 350 million tons of plastic items are produced around the world.
Roughly half of that amount is expendable, meaning those products are abandoned after their initial use.
Plastic trash can then often reach nature, whether it be land or sea, and it can stay there for a long time.
According to data compiled by the Israeli high-tech company Solutum, the plastic that reaches the sea kills more than one million marine animals per year.
This plastic also affects the food and water consumed by people, causing various health problems.
