It is estimated that each year from 4.8 million to 12.7 million tons of plastic goes to the seas and oceans, in large part from places where the garbage is carelessly thrown on the ground or into the river, and rivers go to the seas and oceans. Then ocean currents transfer them to the farthest corners of the world, even on the remote islands of the South Pacific. An unfortunate example is the uninhabited Henderson Island discovered in 2015, away from more than 5,000 people. km, currently it is entirely covered with garbage, mainly plastic. Based on the research, it was estimated that this small piece of land contains a total of nearly 38 million pieces of waste. Some of them managed to read the labels, which showed that the island’s waste comes largely from China, Japan and South America, but also from such distant places as Scotland or Germany.
