What Goes In The Ocean Goes In You

BREAKING NEWS: On May 23, L.A. became the largest city in the U.S. to ban plastic bags in supermarkets! The city follows San Francisco, Long Beach, and San Jose who have all enacted similar bans. “Let’s get the message to Sacramento that it’s time to go statewide,” said Councilman Ed Reyes. Um, yes, please?!?!Share this if you support getting plastics out of our oceans.

Plastics do not biodegrade. Instead they photodegrade — they break down under exposure to the sun's rays. After plastics enter the marine environment, they slowly photodegrade into smaller pieces that marine life can mistake for food, sometimes with fatal results.
