In international water, there are garbage-islands 15 times the size of Denmark. The reason is the garbage gets disposed in the ocean. If no action is taken, the weight of microplastic in oceans will be equivalent to the weight of all the fishes in the ocean. The main focus of this paper is the current situation of garbage in the shores of the Danish beaches. This problem represents a threat not only to the ecosystem but to the human population as well. We will thoroughly conduct an analysis of the issue, in order to determine the magnitude of the problem.
