Nearly every plastic that has ever been synthesized still exists in some artificial form. While UV light and wave action fragment plastic pollution, those particles retain the chemical properties of plastic and are toxic to wildlife. Because plastic doesn’t biodegrade, marine plastics will persist in the ecosystem for thousands of years.
