'Rise Above Plastics' PSA Shows Urgency Of Ocean Waste Issue (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The shocking amount of plastic waste that is funneled into our oceans often falls by the wayside when pit against other environment issues. The Surfrider Foundation is here to show just how pressing an issue it is with their "Rise Above Plastics" campaign, Treehugger reported. Their animated PSA puts litter in a horrifying light, showing an ocean brimming with plastic, and a whale that looks like it's been dipped in trash.

The PSA ends with a fact that is shocking enough on its own: "Plastics kill 1.5 million marine animals each year."
