Trillions of plastic bits, swept up by current, are littering Arctic waters.Every year, about eight million tons of plastic gets into the ocean, and scientists estimate that there may be as much as 110 million tons of plastic trash in the ocean. Though the environmental effects of plastic pollution are not fully understood, plastic pollution has made its way into the food chain. Plastic debris in the ocean was thought to accumulate in big patches, mostly in subtropical gyres- big currents that converge in the middle of the ocean- but scientists estimate that only about one percent of plastic pollution is in these gyres and other surface waters in the open ocean.
