Plastic Pollution Litter

Hot topic right now is Plastic Pollution of the Planet. This subject has been ongoing for years now and Greenpeace often highlight it. As a child, Plastic was pretty rare to us in the 1950s, but since then the discoveries have come thick and fast, and now within my lifetime we have succeeded in choking the World with plastic of every description.

What is really shocking is the time it takes for these substances to biodegrade. Fishing line for instance takes 600 years to break down, and many other everyday items anything from 50 to 450 years.

More details on the BBC website

                                   It is incumbent on all of us to act now to tackle this threat to the environment and all living things in it !
