A young Cuvier's beaked whale that washed up in the Philippines died from “gastric shock” after ingesting 40kg of plastic bags. 40 kilos of plastic bags, including 16 rice sacks. 4 banana plantation style bags and multiple shopping bags were found in the whale’s stomach after conducting an autopsy. Please make the connection between your consumption and this. Reducing the amount of plastic we use is the only way to win this plastic battle.
