Expedition team find alarming amounts of plastic in the ocean

A team of French scientists and explorers is warning that carelessly discarded plastics are steadily building up and causing an ecological disaster in the world’s oceans.

In March 2014, the team braved the rough seas of the North Atlantic to collect and analyse vast quantities of plastic debris in the area, which is one of five ‘ocean gyres’ in which significant amounts of trash accumulate because of circling ocean currents. (KhaleejTimes, 24/03/2015)
