Where Plastic goes when we are finished with it

Photographs here taken by Chris Jordan on the island of Midway, provides evidence of where our indestructible plastics end up; in the stomachs of baby albatrosses, who died as a result. These birds ingested plastic carried on the oceans thousands of miles from population centres, and the plastic items are clearly visible and identifiable. Among the identifiable items are cigarette lighters and plastic bottle lids.
