Next week in English you will be designing and writing your own explanation and Information text about plastic pollution and how it affects our World Oceans. Use this page of resources to help plan out your text.
Working title: Was the British Government Right in Banning Microbeads?
What is the problem?
“Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats facing our oceans, with items ranging from whole plastic bottles to tiny microplastics being found in seas all around the world,” said Louise Edge, senior oceans campaigner at Greenpeace UK.
Plastic pollution, which is set to treble between 2015 and 2025 without intervention, has a physical presence in the oceans, and can accumulate on the coasts or in particular areas of the sea.
While animals have been documented consuming or becoming entangled in plastics, the toxic effects they have when they break down and end up inside marine organisms are still not clear.
