Our Plastic Problem

 
Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans

The amount of plastic in the ocean is set to increase tenfold by 2020

Plastic is found in the ocean as far as 11km deep, meaning synthetic fibers have contaminated even the most remote places on Earth!

By 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish!
