Currently, 92,000 tons of plastic are dumped into our ocean each and every week, and over 331 species consume this plastic each year. Many sea turtles have eaten plastic bags thinking that it's a jellyfish. This same mistake causes thousands of marine mammals to die every year.
It is estimated that If we don't stop polluting our ocean "NOW," then by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our ocean. If plastic stops entering our ocean immediately, then in 3 years all of the plastic on the ocean's surface will be gone. The plastic pollution is so severe that it has even been raining plastic in several parts of the world.
Demand that all fast food companies stop using plastic and use eco-friendly alternatives so that we aren't swimming in a sea of plastic!
