The confetti and glitter is still all over the place. Thrown in the air for the perfect graduation or wedding photographs, and the teeny tiny colorful pieces litter the ground.
Eventually, it will rain, and all those little pieces of plastic will wash into the storm drains. Eventually, they’ll travel into the ocean.
Despite bans on plastic bags and the recent ban on microbeads in the U.S., plenty of similar plastics end up in our oceans. Like glitter, they contribute to the 800 tons of plastic that make their way into the ocean each year.
