dc.description.abstractThis book discusses the uses of petrochemical compounds in the form of plastics. As versatile as this material is, plastic debris is taking its toll on our beaches. Marine mammals are getting entangled in these products, and dead birds are strung out along the shore as a result of consuming the plastics. Chemicals converted to plastic are in the form of pellets, and are transported in that form. the pellets spill during the move, and wash up on the beaches. Several methods of prevention and cleanup are discussed in this booklet.en_US
