15 Ways Every Plastic Bottle You Throw Away Puts Animals in Danger

-

At the moment, humanity makes about 300 million tons of plastic every year. And half of it is used only once (like bags and wrapping). Only 10% of it is recycled and the rest goes to garbage dumps and rivers. According to a recent study, 10 rivers (2 in Africa and 8 in Asia) transport 90% of all the plastic that ends up in oceans. The scale of pollution is awful and many of us don’t even realize how bad the situation is.

Bright Side has collected 15 photos that will show you what a terrible place we have turned our planet into. Saying that we were shocked by the pictures we saw is a total understatement. And the video in the bonus section will leave you speechless.
