It is estimated that over 8 tons of plastic enters the ocean every year and some studies have estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.
Over 100 000 marine animals die each year as a result of plastic entanglement and ingestion.
There are dead zones in the oceans that have been created by pollution, and in which any form of life is impossible.
Plastic is the number one source of pollution in the ocean.
Are our Governments doing anything about it?
In December 2017, 200 countries, including the U.S, signed a United Nations resolution to eliminate ocean plastic pollution. The U.S. then led the way on rejecting the draft legally binding resolution. The current US administration hasn’t made, and isn’t expected to make, any headwinds in helping work toward a globally accepted way forward.
So our governments are not doing anything.
There is currently only one solution : us.
We can find a solution, but we need to be willing to work together to find that solution.
We’re in a car heading fast toward a brick wall. We have control over the steering wheel, but will we grab it?
What are you doing about it?
