Each day millions of pieces of new plastic end up into our oceans. We all have seen the drastic pictures of drowning turtles and dead animals with stomachs full of trash. We all know, that littering the world will become an even bigger problem in the near future. Nonetheless I can sometimes not avoid seeing trash as beautiful or even as part of nature.
Nature does not judge. Nature absorbs, transforms and spreads litter like every other substance or material that gets into its cycles. Nature does not know time. We have to be aware of the fact that trash is everywhere, even if we do not see it at first sight.
Presumably our waste lasts longer than homo sapiens.
