Minder Plastic Soep

Sorry, this entry is only available in Dutch.

Geen PET-flesjes plastic soep meer

The PET soda bottle is in the top three of items found on the beach – behind cigarette butts and candy wrappers. In Great Britain more than a million where found during last years annual Beach Clean-up. On the Dutch beaches bottle caps can be found everywhere too – with an average of 16 caps per hundred meter of beach. The matching bottles mostly on the seabed since PET is heavier than water.

Thames vs Rhine

Plastic does not respect borders. Plastic that flows down an English or Dutch river washes up on German, Danish or Swedisch shores. The problem is international and urgent. Every year more than 1.000.000 sea birds and 100.000 sea mammals die from ingestion, entanglement or suffocation caused by marine litter.

Ask Stichting de Noordzee about what is found during Dutch beach cleanups.

And scientist Henk van Franeker from Imares does research on plastic in birds.
