#funnyfriday week 17 – Oceans Pollution

For this funny Friday we are not going to talk about something funny per se, but about something really relevant, such as the environment.

Since the creation of the first plastic product in 1907, the production of this material has had an exponential growth over the last decades, becoming one of the main polluting agents of our planet. But most of all, the situation of the oceans is becoming more and more critical: as far as 2010 an estimated 10,000s to 100,000s tonnes of plastics was in the ocean surface waters!
