Why? The amount of trash and debris in and around the ocean is potentially harmful to our beautiful and unique environment. Marine debris can come from great distances inland. It reaches even the most remote places of the world’s ocean. It floats on the surface, ends up on beaches, and sinks to the ocean floor. It clogs mangroves and smothers corals. It is responsible for the death of thousands of marine animals and seabirds every year.
