Cowan grew up near the Great Lakes, the largest body of fresh water on Earth. Like the ocean, you cannot see across and they regulate climate. There was a time, not too long ago, when oceans didn't contain plastic. It was this unfathomably massive landscape, an endless horizon. Early sailors believed these were the gateways to the end of the world.
Modern containers for personal care and grooming products have serious reprecusions to not only oceans, but humanity. We now consume the very chemicals the plastic containers our bodywash, shampoo, deodorant, and other personal care items are derived through bioaccumulation in food chains as well as direct leaching from product packaging. Researchers have discovered that the negative effects of chemicals including Bisphenol A and phthalates are powerful endocrine disrupters and are linked to such health problems as decreased fertility in men. Micro-plastics can even be found in our commercial sea salt. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish if we continue this global trend.
