It's all becoming crystal clear: garbage in the Arctic

Last fall the first studies showed microplastics near Svalbard in Arctic waters.

Now we learn that a lot of the garbage in the Arctic has been carried from UK seas. It surprises me these findings are only arriving now but the collective consciousness of knowledge of and fighting of the trash is happening, thankfully. This Guardian article by Damian Carrington is well worth a read:

Plastic waste dumped in UK seas 'carried to Arctic within two years'
