It's not just a matter of mess and dirt, plastic waste injures animals that can get trapped in larger pieces or even mistake smaller parts for food. The ingestion of plastic particles prevents the digestion of normal food and can promote the presence of toxic chemical pollutants in their body;
In addition, humans eat the plastic ingested by fish through the food chain. The effects this step has on human health are still unknown.
