plastic bottles, bags and microbeads) in the Earth's environment that adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. Plastics that act as pollutants are categorized into micro- meso- or macro debris, based on size.

Plastics are inexpensive and durable, and as a result levels of plastic production by. Plastic wastes are now widespread (Teuten et al., ).

Marine bacterial isolates capable of degrading low-density and high-density polyethylene (HDPE and LDPE) have been reported (Balasubramanian et al., ; Harshvardhan & Jha, ). The isolates include several genera that include hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria: namely, Kocuria.

Its size expands daily as the vortex of plastic soup reflects limitless bottles, bags, wrappers, cups, balloons, shoes, pellets, hooked birds, oil seeps, paints, waxes and other man-made disposables.

The worst, though, could be the endless nexus of high density polyethylene and polypropylene wastes referred to as the plastic plague/5(39).
