A volunteer shows part of the marine litter collected at the bottom of the coast of Los Abrigos (Tenerife). During a short dive you can fill your hands with various plastic waste such as wet wipes, many of them are made with synthetic materials such as polyester or polypropylene, which will end up as microplastics after degrading and pose a great threat to the environment.
