Despite the vastness of Earth’s oceans, plastic pollutants are turning up everywhere, from the deep sea to the Arctic ice pack. Shockingly, researchers estimate that by 2050 the oceans will contain more plastic—by weight—than fish. As these degrading plastics leach potentially toxic chemicals into the seas, they pose a serious threat to ocean animals, as well as to humans.

To combat this frightening prognosis, Hawaii—among other places—is contemplating a ban on the sale and distribution of single-use polystyrene. In this short film from filmmaker Chris Hanson, 17 Hawaiian students study the impact of plastic pollution on their local beaches in order to help create a more sustainable future for the world’s oceans.

  1. so meaningful, though i couldn't understand them at all. Anyway, stop talking about enviroment and polluntion, just action

  2. Good luck kids, shady companies have gigantic ships filled with tons of junk throwing them into the ocean. Even collecting thousand a day won't help.

  3. this is way we are gona goo to hell 👑🙏☠💀🌍🌎🌏🌋🔥👺🔥👹🔥👿😈

  4. to be real people dont give a damn and people will continue to not give a damn beacause they are all to busy fighting among themselves

  5. earrings, hair dye, nail color, ….. do i have to say more ? They should start at themselves to be a good idol to others. picking it up and complaining wont fix anything really.Awfully people fall for that stuff ov videos. like the one about pangolins. all cry about that pangolins and tell hoiw they dont deserve it because they are so cute. what about chicken? eggs? cows? foxes? and the list goes on and on. just have seen 5 NG Videos and all have this schizophrenic story and theme. May be you should cooperate with WWF….

  6. Each and every one of us has the power to be the change. Live the Zero Waste lifestyle (search here on Youtube, tons of people are already living it and talking about it) 💛

  7. i wish as many people that cared about updating their facebook statuses cared about cleaning and caring for our enviroments

  8. thats very nice but what about fukushima letting tons of radioactive water into the pacific ocean everyday and ps. we drink,take a shower,eat seafood and do all kinds of stuff with water so u never know when the world may end by one little thing that mostly nobody knows about. #RIP

  9. Pollution and littering is the stupidest thing we can every do, I see it all over and it makes me sick and I hate it because we take so much away from nature already and then people disregard their trash like its nothing. I see these kids and it makes me proud. If we are going to create waste products we have to dispose of it properly
