Inspired by the work of environmentalist David de Rothschild and his Plastiki Expedition in 2010, the British School Tenerife organised a series of school trips to beaches at La Caleta, so the children could see for themselves the reality of plastic pollution of the oceans. 
With the help of teachers from the school the children carried out surveys and discovered that on average there was as much as seven pieces of plastic to one square metre of beach. 
A full report with images of some of the plastic found can be read at Tenerife Islander's HubPages site here:
