Plastic Soup, what are the consequences? (ENG)


Abstract

Many of us have heard about the plastic soup. Plastic waste flushes into the ocean where it builds up to what have even been called plastic islands in the middle of the oceans. But what is really going on? Where does the plastic come from? What happens to it in the ocean? And what are the consequences of this plastic build up for marine life and ourselves? These questions will be addressed in this talk together with an overview of what we can do to stem the enormous flow of plastics into our seas.
