Plastic enters our oceans at a staggering rate—approximately 8 million pieces a day—and it affects the entire planet.
It is believed that by the end of this decade there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish, by weight. One of plastic’s key benefits is also its primary problem… it’s permanence. Rather than disappear it degrades and breaks up into micro-plastic particles that can find their way into the food chain and eventually onto your plate at home!
That’s why it’s imperative that we not only clean up the plastic already in our oceans, but that we act now to stop more of the material ending up there.
