Plastic litter on the UK coastline has increased 126% since 1994 according to the Marine Conservation Society's report. The largest single source of litter was visitors and recreation on the coast (35.3%) followed by fishing litter (13.7%). The problem exacerbated as more products are now made of plastic.
Scotland has the highest level of litter density, up 30.4% in a year.
Northern Ireland's beaches litter density increased 60% in a year.
South West England had the highest level of rubbish per kilometer.
Made me think of a video I posted almost a year ago...
