Plastic waste in our oceans
Every minute, the equivalent of one full garbage truck of plastic trash is dumped in the sea. That is 1440 trucks per 24 hours and 8 BILLION kilos per year.” A disaster for all life, including ours.
The world produces more than 311 million tonnes of new plastic every year and growing at 8% per year reaching a horrifying number of 600 million tonnes per year!
More plastic was produced in the last decade than in the entire 20th century.
Due to mismanaged waste systems in certain parts of the world, over 8 millions tonnes of plastic enters the oceans every year.
80% of the plastics entering the ocean comes form landfills. The remaining 20% comes from ships, fishing (like ghost nests) and the offshore industry. Re-use and recycling can prevent the plastic waste from leaking into our environment and ultimately entering our oceans.
