There’s trash in the river Yangtze
It’s making its way to the Sea
For the Chinese pollute
and they don’t give a hoot
One wonder, how bad can it be?
It turns out that 93% of all the plastics that reach the oceans come from just 10 rivers, eight in Asia and two in Africa. Of them the Yang-Tse river contributes about half. All other rivers combined from Africa, America, Asia, Australia, Europe and North and South America contribute about 7% (Source Scientific American 2018)
