More on Plastic Pollution in Our Oceans
To follow up from our recent plastic-related posts, here’s a great video of one my personal heroes –Sir David Attenborough – speaking about plastic pollution.

Here he recalls the introduction of plastics and how they were heralded for their convenience without thought to their indestructibility.
Check out the upcoming Plastic Oceans film.
