Scale of the Problem

Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter our oceans, affecting marine life and even reaching the most remote corners of the Earth.

From tiny plankton to majestic whales, marine creatures ingest or get entangled in plastic, leading to injury and death

Impact on Marine Life

Tiny plastic fragments, microplastics, permeate the oceans, entering the food chain and eventually reaching our plates.

Microplastics: The Invisible Threat

A vast expanse of floating plastic debris, twice the size of Texas, swirls in the Pacific, highlighting the magnitude of the crisis.

Great Pacific Garbage Patch

Plastic pollution harms fisheries, tourism, and shipping, leading to billions in economic losses.

Economic Implications

Plastics in the ocean break down into toxic chemicals, which can end up in our food and water, posing health risks.

Human Health Concerns

Minimizing plastic use, recycling effectively, and reusing items can significantly reduce plastic waste.

Solutions: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Organizations and volunteers worldwide are taking action, organizing beach clean-ups and developing technologies to remove plastics from the oceans
