What You Can Do To Keep Our Planet Healthy

Currently, there are 300 million tons of waste covering the floor of the Mediterranean Sea. Some of the debris will remain there for centuries.
A newspaper takes 6 weeks to decompose in the sea.
A cardboard box takes 3 months.
A cigarette butt takes 2 years.
A steel can takes 80 years.
An aluminum can takes 100 years.
A plastic bag takes 300 years.
Keep litter out of our oceans.
