People throw away plastic items and these break down into bits. These bits of plastic might be tiny but they are very harmful when washed into the sea. Sea creatures mistake them for krill and swallow them. When we throw away a plastic object we are showing lack of respect for the creatures sharing our planet in our seas and oceans!
