“Only we humans make waste that nature can't digest." - Captain Charles Moore
Marine Debris is solid material that has been disposed of or abandoned into the marine
environment or the Great Lakes.
Plastic makes up about 80% of the marine debris in the Great Lakes.
Microplastic is extremely small, broken down plastic debris. It poses a large threat to the Great
Microplastic severely harms animals in and around the lakes.
