The plastic pollution impose at the human corps the lower function of thyroid hormone and sex hormones. They can cause dermatitis once they are in contact with the human skin. In some plastic products some toxic chemicals have been used as additives in plastic compound. The aim of this study is to estimate the quality of Durres coastline using CCI valuation .The Methods used is the same with in project ; “De fish Gear”. Thus, the classification for plastic pollution of the coastal area of Durres is completed thanks to the collection of plastic in them. This research shows how is contaminated with plastic pollution are part of the coastal area of Durres in Albania. The sapling was done in two different points along the cost of Durres: the first sampling was done in Plepa beach meanwhile the second one was done in Ishmi beach. The results show that the pollution in Ishmi area is higher compared to Plepa beach. This study suggest that there is a need to raise the public awareness of Government, NGOs, scientists etc., to reduce as much as possible the use of plastic products.
