Oceans of Plastic: Understanding and Solving a Pollution Problem

Tracey Gray

It’s estimated that there are more pieces of plastic in the ocean than visible stars in the Milky
Way. That’s a lot of plastic! So how can we stop plastic from our homes and streets from
ending up floating in oceans far away? By becoming ocean changemakers!

Oceans of Plastic: Understanding and Solving a Pollution Problem explores how ocean systems and currents bring plastics
together. Tracey Gray examines marine debris, the break-up of plastics, how marine animals
eat plastic by mistake and then how it works along food webs all the way to your dinner plate!

This exciting book shows us how to be part of the plastic solution. Practical tips for reducing
our everyday plastic use are included, along with fascinating facts on how local communities,
designers and innovators are working on bold new ideas to protect our oceans.

Together we can be the ocean changemakers of the future and help reduce plastic waste in the
oceans!

Includes information on species affected by marine debris and innovations and people working together to solve this complex issue.
