One of the biggest polluters for lakes, rivers and oceans is plastic waste. The source of this waste is everything from plastic six-pack rings to personal care products. If you fish waterways, one of the most important things you can do is invest in biodegradable fishing lines and lures. This is a special type of resin that naturally degrades down in just five years, versus 500 years for conventional plastic. And while it is biodegradable, great care should be taken to never leave it in the water where you fish.
