Our oceans are suffocating from plastic pollution and it’s predicted that there’ll be more plastic than fish by 2050 if we don't act now.
Did you know?
Plastic is indestructible – every bit of plastic ever created is still on earth with us today.
Over 8 million tons of plastic is dumped in the oceans each year.
We produce over 300 million tonnes of plastic each year.
We use 20 million plastic water bottles every year.
50% of all plastic is single use, with 12 minutes being the average time of use.
80% of ocean use originates from land.
Over 40% of sea birds have ingested plastic.
Fish ingest plastic and it then becomes part of the food chain – ultimately being consumed by humans.
Ingesting these toxins has been linked to cancers, cognitive problems, and infertility.
The oceans provide us with 50% of the oxygen we breathe.
