Plentiful Plastic Problem
When you step in the sand, there're pieces of plastic everywhere. Also, there is 100 million tons of plastic in the ocean. This comes from littering plastic, which will blow away and get washed up by waves. They look like jellyfish in the ocean. Sea turtles eat jellyfish, and the plastic will get consumed by the turtle and put its life in danger. Don't let this happen anymore.
One solution is to pick it up and use reusable things. Also, people can educate about this problem. There are many ways to stop the harm, now it's time for you to act!

Let's use alternatives like bubbles, kites, ribbons, drumming, planting trees.
