Contamination of the environment is one of the biggest problems of mankind today. Many things were said about the contamination of the environment and how it affects people, flora and fauna. But, there is still not enough human awareness of this extremely important problem for our future. There are various forms of pollution of the environment, but we will focus only on the contamination of the sea. The sea can be polluted in a number of ways: by waste waters, ballast waters, motor oil and crude oil. But the sea can be polluted by another dangerous type of contamination – with plastic which makes most of the waste in our seas and oceans. All participants in the life-cycle of plastic should make the reduction of the amount of plastic waste in marine environment their priority. Our paper will focus precisely on this serious global problem. We will point at the sources of pollution, indicate some of the ways in which plastic waste affects animal life and give some examples of international legal regulations relating to the problem.
