Marine litter is any manufactured or processed solid material that is discarded or abandoned in the sea or coast or somehow makes its way to the marine environment. It is now recognized as a worldwide and emerging problem, threatening wildlife and ecosystems, leading to large economic costs to coastal towns and maritime industries, and not yet fully understood human health implications. It is a complex issue, as it is rooted in our prevailing production and consumption patterns and the way we dispose and manage waste.
