Imagine being trapped inside a huge plastic bag. Each year, more than a million marine creatures and other birds and animals die from plastic trash. In the week leading up to World Oceans Day 2016, National Geographic took to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., with a plastic bag large enough to bring this issue to life at a human scale. This dramatization featuring National Geographic video staff simulates the experience of marine creatures that become trapped in plastic and can't escape. The plastic bag, created by art collective Red Dirt Studio, will be recycled through D.C.'s Office of Recycling.

The use of plastic for various purposes is very masive throughout the world. And it turns out to have a bad impact on the environment. Among the worst impacts were not suffered by humans as a plastic user, but by animals, especially living in the ocean. Like this the suffering of the animals are caused by human activities that can not manage plastic waste properly. Credit : https://soundcloud.com/spacewolfmusic

All the animals are suffering from plastic. Plastic pollution affects at least 700 marine species, while some estimates suggest that at least 100 million marine mammals are killed each year from plastic pollution. Here are some of the marine species most deeply impacted by plastic pollution. Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic products in the environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat and humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro-, meso-, or macro debris, based on size. Say no to plastic. Save the World.

So what does the plastic we use every day have to do with animals? A lot, as it turns out. How can we stop animals being hurt by plastic pollution? Living a zero waste life and ditching single-use plastic helps the planet and the animals on it. Single-use plastic is things like plastic cutlery, bags and packaging, and get thrown away. But where is away? Sometimes in landfill but a lot also ends up in our ocean which is a problem for wildlife that cause them to be injured or worse. You might not think much of the plastic bags you used when you bought your groceries but one bag can injure thousands of animals in it’s lifetime which could be thousands of years. If you’re an animal lover then not purchasing these products is the only way to stop them entering the environment and you might find you can save money while you’re at it. Have you made any plastic swaps? Let me know in the comments and subscribe if you enjoy this video! In this video I show you 7 ways to stop plastic harming animals by making small changes in your life. Welcome to my channel!

13 Very important and terrible effects of the pollution that us humans are creating from trash harming animals to noise pollution Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7. Acid Rain Acid rain can occur naturally from volcanic emissions but there is a direct result of human activities and acid rain. With toxic fumes getting mixed into clouds, they get absorbed into our atmosphere and can come out from rain. Animals and plants need a particular ph level in order to stay healthy... 6. Noise Pollution Effects Many of us might limit the idea of pollution only to nature and not sound. We are quite used to the sounds of urban life and it doesn’t begin to bother us. Whether it’s listening to music or pets barking, it might not be a serious issue. But when noise keeps us from going to sleep at night, it begins to turn into pollution. This normal infers to noises that are unnatural and excessive. This can actually lead to more problems than you’d like to think. Our ears were not constructed to handle the amount of noise that we might experience in the big cities of today. Loud noise can certainly lead to sleeping disorders and health issues as well. Studies show that aggressiveness can be a direct link to noise pollution. This affects other animals as well, especially since they rely heavily on sound in for things such as hunting and mating rituals. 5. Toxic Air Pollution Some places in China are experiencing record high levels of air pollution. It’s getting so rough out there that even dogs are wearing surgical masks to protect themselves from the toxic fumes. In 2015, 100 million people were warned and told to stay inside their houses across 10 different cities. Schools and factories were shut down, hoping to reduce exposure to the heavy blankets of toxic air swarming the country. Rising levels of air pollution have caused a new disease; called the Beijing Cough. This is from burning a large amount of petroleum in recent years. In the past, the air pollution from China has travelled to the Central Valley of California. A number of children suffer from respiratory illnesses and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Kids are more vulnerable to respiratory illnesses due to their size Living somewhere with a lot of pollution certainly makes it difficult for Santa Claus act jolly during Christmas time 4. Smog Smog is a direct result of air pollution and other places like LA There are several pollutants that make the sky murky. There’s particulate matter which includes smoke and is the main cause for smog. But there are other pollutants that are released which certainly don’t help. Other common air pollutants include Hydrocarbons, Sulfur Dioxides, and silent, invisible killer (carbon monoxide). Cars, and trucks also emit a large amount of smog. A simple way to reduce this is to participate in carpooling or taking public transportation. Each year, 50,000 or more people die in the US due to air pollution. 3. Trash Outweighing Fish It’s predicted that in the future, about 30 years from now if changes aren’t made, they’re will be more trash in Earth’s oceans. The amount of plastic waste is much higher than other type of trash that is found and is much more hazardous to our ecosystem. Much of this could simply be avoided by just recycling. The plastic is not only valuable to companies who want to use it, but quite important to keep out of our oceans. It takes one plastic water bottle, 450 years to biodegrade. Some bottles possibly 1000! Debris left over from fishing can be left in the ocean and harm seals like we see in this photo. 2. Fish Kills Another shocking effect of pollution is what’s known as a fish kill. This is when a large amount of fish show up dead and can be caused from numerous environmental factors. Although there are natural causes for this, things like toxicity, reduced levels of dissolved oxygen and drought are all possible ways. Agricultural pollutions with water rich in pesticides can often reach places where fish are present. If a chemical like cyanide is released into the water, people will be able to tell from the fish's gills turning a cherry red. The fish’s habitat is fairly fragile and any slight changes in chemical compounds can result in fish kills. 1. Global Warming With so much carbon and greenhouse gases being emitted into the air, where are they supposed to go? Our ozone layer which regulates our temperature, keeps gases from escaping. Temperatures changed and oceans are getting warmer and even slight changes can have dramatic consequences. Glaciers melting. Coral reefs disappearing, droughts, floods can all be a result of this. Let’s all do our part and keep mother earth alive and flourising… Before it’s too late.

Plastic has become a way of life. It seems almost impossible to avoid plastic, Unfortunately, people do not use plastic responsibly, and most of it ends up in our oceans killing over 100,000 marine animals each year. With many solutions available, uninformed people will continue using plastic. With time, plastic will accumulate, eventually causing irreversible damage to the ecosystem.

While on a research project in Costa Rica, Nathan J. Robinson removed a 10 cm (4 in) plastic straw that was entirely embedded into the nostril of an olive ridley sea turtle. Lamentably, this is a consequence of the world of single-use, non-biodegradable plastic that we currently live in. There is a solution and it lies in our own decisions. Please say no to all single-use plastic. Every plastic straw, plastic bag, or plastic bottle that ends up in the oceans could mean the difference between life or death for any number of marine animals. Video taken by: Christine Figgener.

Plastic pollution is killing Ocean animals Marine Creatures and affecting our Environment and Human health due to Plastic. We should recycle Plastic bags. What is Plastic? A Synthetic material produced using an extensive variety of natural polymers, for example, polythene, PVC, nylon and so forth. How plastic is made? The legends of our story were conceived in the oil refinery. The plastic in their bodies was shaped by chemically holding oil and gas particles together to make monomers. Thusly, these monomers were bonded into long polymer chains to make plastic as a huge number of pellets. Those were melted at assembling plants and reformed in molds to make the flexible material. What are Plastic pollution facts? The insignificant certainty that it's not completely biodegradable implies that about each bit of plastic at any point made still exists today. How plastic affects the environment? The unsafe gases which turn out from the enterprises influence our environment most. Like a huge number of huge amounts of his plastic brethren, winds up in a landfill. This gigantic dump grows every day as more waste comes in and keeps on consuming up room. As plastic stay there being compacted among layers of other garbage, rain water courses through the waste and ingests the water-dissolvable mixes it contains, and some of them are exceedingly toxic. Together they make a hurtful stew called leachate, which can move into groundwater, soil and ponds nearby, harming biological communities and hurting out of wildfire. How many Animals are killed each year Because of Plastic Bags? Unfortunately, 8000000 tons of plastic waste hole in the sea consistently. 15 plastic shopping sacks for each meter of coastline on earth every year!! An enormous level of our waste is dumped into the sea where it is eaten via ocean animals that we people consume like fish, crabs et cetera. Indeed, even tiny fish, the most modest animals in our seas, are eating 'small scale plastics' and retaining their poisons. Plastic affects on human health The synthetic substances in plastic are known endocrine disruptors and it is generally realized that plastics from nourishment bundling can drain into sustenance and enter the body. These chemical can be found in the blood and tissue of almost every one of us. Many things can be created from waste Plastic Go Green!!

This top 10 list of interesting ways plastic pollution affects our oceans and the environment will make you think more about recycling and helping our future!

Plastic and the Ocean Plastics are an everyday part of our life, that's just fact. However, once you throw away that water bottle, or that plastic fork, you forget about it. Every 8 seconds, a bag or two's worth of plastic is thrown into the ocean. About every year, 8 million tons worth of garbage is dumped into the ocean. And it’s becoming a huge problem. 4. Countries Don't Go All Out For Recycling You'd think that with the dangers that plastic presents to our planet that people in the governments of countries all over the world would enforce the notion of recycling. But that's not the case. Countries choose to recycle, and don’t make it mandatory law, and that's led to many problems. For example, what do you think the highest rate of recycling is in one country? The top recycler, how much do you think? 3. Animals and Ecosystems So, besides filling up the oceans, it may seem like plastic is just floating around and not really affecting anything else. BUT plastics can be lethal to all sorts of animals, and it can fill up and destroy their homes by just being there. 2. You Can Help After hearing all the things that plastics can do to our planet and its creatures, you’re probably wondering what you can do to help stop this epidemic. If you are, listen up, because you can help, and you can do it in the simplest of ways that honestly won't cost you a thing. 1. The Plastic Continent You might think I'm exaggerating here, but I'm honestly not. In the Pacific Ocean there is a mound of plastic waste and garbage so big that it actually looks like its own continent when you look at it from above. People looking at satellite images actually thought it was a lost continent!! It is easily confused with a land mass, but then as you get closer to it, you see the truth. That it is a mound of trash comprised of the waste of humanity.

Some 500 dead sea lions were discovered decomposing on a beach, 250 miles north of the Peruvian capital, Lima, possibly after ingesting massive amounts of plastic polluting the waters, according to a report by Salon. While the local governor, however, accused fishermen, who compete with the animals for shellfish, of having poisoned them, investigators are looking into possible explainations, such as diseases. Marine animals often confuse plastic bags and garbage for prey and ingest them. According to the Sea Turtle Foundation, plastic debris is to blame for the deaths of a million birds and 100,000 marine mammals each year. The North Pacific Gyre, one of the world’s largest ocean gyres, is often referred to as the Pacific trash vortex, due to high concentrations of floating plastic debris. Due to rotational currents, trash is captured from across the Pacific Ocean, including coastal waters off North America and Japan, and then is gradually moved towards the North Pacific Gyre’s center, where it becomes trapped. The vortex is made of some 100 million tons of plastic, including large objects or disintegrated objects and particles. About half of them float atop the ocean’s surface, while the remaining, heavier half, can be found in the water column below it or along the bottom of the ocean. The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that worldwide, each square mile of ocean water contains 46,000 pieces of garbage. Plastic does not biodegrade, meaning it does not break down into natural elements. Rather, it photodegrades, gradually splitting into small, tiny particles. When small enough, it can be ingested by aquatic organisms, and therefore is able to enter the food chain. ------------------------------------------------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

These disturbing images show the terrible damage plastic bags can inflict on vulnerable wildlife. The shocking autopsy pics show sea turtles in Australia that have been killed by the seemingly innocuous shopping item. Plastic bags are often ingested by the creatures who think they are jelly fish. They then form into balls which can block the turtles intestines and stomach. The turtles then either starve, have their gut punctured, or even die from toxins released by the bags. Roughly 180 million plastic bags are thrown away each year across the Australia, according to conservationists the Boomerang Alliance. The group are now calling for a nation-wide ban. Dr Larry Vogelnest, senior veterinarian at Sydney's Taronga Zoo told the Sydney Morning Herald : "Sea turtles are the main species we have affected. "They see these bags in the water and they think they are jelly fish, so they eat them. "70 per cent of turtles we get in have ingested plastic, around 20 per cent of those end up dying." The Australian Registry of Wildlife Health, which operates as part of the Zoo, has released these chilling images to show the damage the plastic bags can do.
