Video captures moment plastic enters food chain - BBC News
A video captures the moment plankton ingest a plastic microfibre.

A scientist has filmed the moment plastic microfibre is ingested by plankton, illustrating how the material is affecting life beneath the waves.

The footage shows one way that waste plastic could be entering the marine and global food chain.

An estimated 150 million tonnes of plastic “disappears” from the world’s waste stream each year.

Waste plastic in the world’s seas has been recognised by the United Nations as a major environmental problem.

“When I saw it, I thought that here was something, visually, to convey to the public the problem of plastic in the sea,” said Richard Kirby, who recorded the footage.

“What intrigues me is that because the fibre has made a loop inside the animal’s gut, you can actually see the consequences of something as small as the arrow worm consuming microplastic.”

Adidas’ new sneaker is made from ocean waste 

A sneaker fashioned from 11 plastic bottles doesn’t exactly sound comfortable, let alone something you’d want to walk around in. But thanks to Adidas’ latest collaboration with Parley for the Oceans, there’s a new limited-edition sneaker made from from a combination of ocean waste and recycled materials that’s both environmentally conscious and unexpectedly stylish. But Adidas’ devotion to being eco-friendly doesn’t stop there.

“I don’t see color” is saying “I judge everybody by my lens and white culture, I judge everybody based on how they conform to white ideals”. That’s pretty…. racist. You should see color, you should see that people come from different backgrounds and have lived in a world that treats them differently. You should understand that your culture isn’t more important than other people’s culture. And you definitely shouldn’t ever judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree. All people deserve the same respect for their heritage and background.

Tomi Lahren, you are truly one of a kind, and not in a particularly favorable light. You have compared the BLM movement to the KKK yet your Preacher Man rhetoric is very much of a Neo-Nazi Bible Thumper. Question: Do you see genocide, mass murder, a diaspora, a permanent displacement of home and country, an ethnic cleanse, political asylum, an aberration of freedoms to choose our religion, speech, pathology, and the way we think and the way we feel? If so, do tell because what I see is a narrow-minded privilege to the Aryan culture you were born with and a flagrant disregard to the other sides of life where hair extensions, fake lashes, and lip dermal collagen is not an everyday trip to the Cut-Copy-and-Paste Dr. Plastic. People all around us in America have the freedom to protest because we were dubbed inferior to the likes of you. Worst, there are people in disparaging harrowing acts of magnanimous sorrow, where the worlds are crashing beneath their feet and they are being labeled as terrorists when all they want is a refuge to make another place called home. You’re just a teeny-bobber airhead who presides in her laps of luxury as a chosen one when in reality, people like me feel sorry for people like you. Because of the color of my skin, I am presumably subservient to your “entity.” And we laugh at you because you don’t have the brain to buy a clue that you’re a sheep, being used like a Hermes bag that is so last season. You got your degree from Tump University and you have done absolutely nothing in life except to pander to the psycho right wing crap to conservative baby boomers who haven’t had an erection since the Reagan Administration.   Good job being a common-law Reaganomics whore.— Jennifer Brigitte
