269 thousand tonnes of plastic were found to float on the world's oceans, many are concentrated in the Bay of Bengal and the South China Sea.The plastic pollution issue is greatly affecting wildlife. The US is taking a lot of measures to reduce plastic pollution such as landfills.

I feel that we can take some personal measures to reduce the plastic pollution such as depositing plastic items into the appropriate recycling bins. We can also carry our own shopping bags or carts when going to the supermarket, so that we do not need to be given a plastic bag. Governments can also increase the price of plastic bags to discourage plastic pollution.
