Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during whole last century.
At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year. That’s similar to emptying a garbage truck of plastic into the ocean every minute.
50% of the plastic we use, is used just once and thrown away.
It takes 500 to 1,000 years for plastic to degrade.
Every piece of plastic we have ever used is still on the planet today. That takeaway box that was in your hands for 10 minutes on Friday night could be in the ocean forever.
Since you started to read this page, 1.000.000 plastic bottles were produced around the world.
Ocean is expected to contain 1 ton of plastic for every 3 tons of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastic than fish.
