And now, it’s been proven that it is probably one of the most significant threats to the survival of life in the sea. If anybody eats fish, they are eating plastic. Microplastic is now in fish; it’s in meat; it’s in the soil; it’s everywhere. And it’s a non-biodegradable substance, but the problem is that also it attracts things like PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and other chemicals to it, almost like a magnet. And so, it’s a way for people when they’re eating fish, they eat plastic, they also eat PCBs and other chemicals in that form. I think it’s one of the most insidious threats right now to the survival of all life in the ocean. And of course, that means to all life on the planet.
