Plastic – Lethal Threat in the Ocean

A life without plastic? Difficult to imagine: Where we look, whatever we do, whether we play, work, eat or undergo medical treatment – plastic is our always present, practical companion. As material, plastic offers convincing advantages: It is easy to shape and dye, can be soft and hard, is low density and is therefore light and is resistant to acid and caustics. Also it is comparably cheap. It is, however, these seemingly pleasant qualities that are causing a global problem. A problem of an extent far beyond our imagination.
