2021 - Division I (Ages 5-9)

Oceans are filled with big amounts of waste mostly plastic that even form large islands .Plastic needs 150 years to deteriorate.What a bad invention .Aquatic animals cannot survive surrounded by plastic that travels to their eyes ,noses,fins ,gills ,mouth and finally in their bellies.My country is very hot so we go to the beach often.Before entering the water I remove all garbage using gloves and a bucket.Most of them are plastic bags. ,When the beach is clean I dive with my father and snorkel .Even when the water is crystal clear ,the bottom of the sea is not.This makes me sad and ungry.Turtles have their homes near by and when they lay their eggs ,after they hutch the little turtles can loose their way if they get trapped in garbage.I love turtles and I wish to protect them.What if there was no plastic in the world.Scientists are inventing biodegradable plastic and like magic it dissolves in water!All plastic can be replaced with this new biodegradable invention and then all my aquatic friends can stay safe and healthy and people will be healthy too because when plastic gets in the fish bellies then it goes to ours.There is no time to waste...
