Plastic is choking our oceans.
We dump eight million tonnes of plastic into the sea every year. It’s killing and harming marine life.
- Turtles eat plastic bags mistaking them for jellyfish
- Seabirds are found with their stomachs full of plastic items
- Plastic debris can get lodged in coral and affect the health of reefs
- Microplastics are consumed by animals like plankton, passing the problem back up the food chain – to us.
Plastic is found in the deepest reaches of the ocean, and even in remote Arctic sea ice. It’s a sobering example of our footprint on Earth.
As our plastic consumption is set to skyrocket, it’s clear that urgent action is needed.Get yourself a glass bottle to quench your thirst on the go instead of buying plastic bottles! Do your part to save the oceans!
