British Man Sorts Over A Million Of Plastic Beach Trash During Quarantine

There’s already so much proof for the fact that the quarantine period has made people much more creative. Many have enough time on their hands, and tend to come up with new stuff. I am going to tell you about a man from Britain who used his free time for a good cause.

Robert Arnold used the first three weeks of the lockdown to sort out 551lbs – that is over a million – of microplastic washed up on Tregantle beach. They found so many nurdles and bio-beads in this pile.

Bio-beads are tiny plastic pellets used to filter chemical and organic contaminants from sewage. Once they’re released to sea, they are so hard to spot or remove, and marine animals mistake them for food. Ultimately, they kill these animals.

Some of the plastic thus found was over 60 years old! He found a headless Guards Bandsman given away with Kelloggs Cornflakes in 1958! It’s no wonder since every year, the ocean is polluted with 8 million metric tons of plastic. The immensity of the impact of this on our ecosystem has been repeated on the internet so many times, but to no effect. I will only say that the changes in nature during this lockdown was enough to show the extent to which human actions ruin nature.

Let me walk you through the story!
