It’s estimated that there are between 100 to 150 million tons of plastic waste in the world’s oceans right now. Meaning that yes, the ocean is polluted — and that’s a major problem.

In addition, fewer and fewer ocean animals and plants can grow and thrive in these polluted ecosystems, which is bad for the environment as a whole. Hot or cold? Salty or sweet? Calm or fast? Are we sounding the alarm soon enough?
