My name is Ally Oh and I’m 11 years old. I am writing about my concerns for the ocean. I am concerned about plastic waste flowing into the ocean.
I was shocked to find out that an average American adult digests 126 to 142 pieces of microplastic and inhales a similar quantity. Masks, gloves, plastic containers, plastic bags and other waste from the COVID-19 is not healthy for our environment.
In my opinion, we, humans will die from the plastic pollution instead of the COVID-19.
