Plastic waste, sometimes found even in the stomach of whales; It pollutes sea waters, fertile lands, and every place imaginable. As such, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has launched a remarkable event for plastic waste. The event, initiated by WWF, started on March 30 and 450 yearsit will last.
The reason why the event, which was started in Lisbon, Portugal, lasted 450 years, is that a plastic waste pollutes the world for 450-500 years.

Only one plastic bottle is displayed in this live broadcast, which was made to draw attention to the damage caused by plastic waste pollution to the world.
