Erma - It turns out that about 90 percent of all the plastic that reaches the world's oceans gets flushed through just 10 rivers: The Yangtze, the Indus, Yellow River, Hai River, the Nile, the Ganges, Pearl River, Amur River, the Niger, and the Mekong (in that order).So next time you are denied a plastic bag ,straw or cup in the United States ,ask yourself this question,How is it going from my recycle can, into the Ocean???...Who are we really helping??
