An American undersea explorer has achieved the feat of making the deepest sea dive ever recorded. But his achievement however has come with terrible news.

For The Win

We are talking about Victor Vescovo, an American investor who made the deepest dive a human has EVER made in a submarine. Apart from finding four new species, he found a plastic bag and candy wrappers in the deepest place in the ocean.

So, while 95% of the ocean remains unexplored, our trash has managed to reach there. This only goes to highlight the far-reaching impact of plastic pollution. 

Ocean Plastics

The high amounts of plastic bags are thrown all over the world into the oceans which is not only choking the aquatic life but also is now reaching a level that is shaking the ecosystem.

A disappointed Vescovo added that, 

It was very disappointing to see obvious human contamination of the deepest point in the ocean. It’s not a big garbage collection pool, even though it’s treated as such.

At this terrible rate of plastic being dumped in the oceans, the environmental crisis is the last thing that must be ignored right now.
