Nurdles!

While people are ever-so-diligently cutting the rings in six-pack holders, the real problem turns out to be nurdles.
Nurdles: They sound like a Willy Wonka invention.

Indeed, these BB-sized plastic pellets - used by manufacturers to make containers, lids and even cell phones - are like everlasting jawbreakers when lost in California rivers and the Pacific Ocean.

They might drift with the currents for hundreds of years unless first eaten by fish. And there are likely billions of them out there, spilled into waterways over the years by sloppy workers.
