Some Plastics Never Go

If one plastic bottle made it into the sea, How long would it take to fully decompose?
Last week I visited Blue Reef Aquarium in Newquay, Cornwall. A perfect aquarium to see interesting fishes and aqua creatures, and even a huge loggerhead sea turtle, which was blind when they found it in Greece.
I saw this information board on the wall about plastics. I think this should be seen by more and more people. Especially by the children in every corner of the world.

As it says on it, "some plastics never go". Absolutely true. So, please share this on your social media, show it to your kids and friends. It's really important.
