From the smallest bits of plastic, car batteries and appliances, to enormous fishing nets, "stuff" from our daily lives makes its way to the ocean by the ton every day. As Earth's growing population consumes more disposable goods, the items we discard, even thousands of miles inland, are choking our ocean planet.
