Pollution? In My Ocean?

Pollution? In My Ocean?

Anyone who visits a local store or market will understand why Thailand is one of the world’s largest consumers of plastic. Drinking bottled water is the norm, and each purchase is accompanied by the offer of countless plastic bags and straws. Government figures show that the country uses 4.4 billion plastic bottles and 7.3 billion plastic bags per year, and about 1.03 million tonnes of this waste ends up in the ocean each year.
