Plastic found in the deepest depths of the ocean

Is there a place on Earth that has not yet been polluted by humans? As he was descending to the deepest depths of the ocean, this explorer found something he wasn't looking for...

    So they reached the deepest part of the ocean. Well done. 👍🏻 Where no human has been before... And what did they do? Collected species for examination! We are still messing around where we don't belong. It's a given that ALL ocean life have dealings with plastic. We know this. We need to stop plastic... Not take species away from their habitat...

    Could it not be from a plane crash or a ship then? We could literally nuke the entire planet and it would still spin the very next day. This brainwashed "save the planet" we are just trying to save the human race, and we are the problem. As soon as we are gone trees and plant life and animals will flourish.

    So disgusting and heartbreaking to know that even the deepest waters are polluted with plastics. The world MUST stop the production of plastics and all countries MUST have the consensus of cleaning all the bodies of water all over the world.

    We are killing the earth instead of taking care for it. And then we get upset when everything isn't just right for us.

    When companies were considered human, we failed as humans. When the dollar became more important than the earth, we failed as humans. No matter what we have accomplished, we have failed the earth.

    Let's not drop plastic in the oceans but do remember that it is a big volume of water ... 70% of the surface of the planet x 100's of metres deep
