658 words - 3 pages

The ocean loves all kinds of life. All the Oceans provide many human essentials and provides economic, financial, recreation, and supplies to help us with our need in life. But if the ocean is there to provide for us why do people that reside on this earth cast waste and pollution into our oceans? The oceans provide us food, a home to all marine life, and are one of the most beautiful creations of our Heavenly Father.

Europe’s landfill is 3.45 million kilometers squared. All the trash adds up over time, also the cost of cleaning up the pollution. In 2010 California spent $375.2 million dollars for disposing, preventing ocean pollution, and cleaning up. California also spends $52.2 million per year to strive to keep all beaches and ports clean. They spend $72 million on collecting all one time use cups and bags.
