There are trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean, forests , nature.
Since the 1950s, around 8.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide.
A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute.
Worldwide, about 2 million plastic bags are used every minute.
90% of plastic polluting our oceans is carried by just 10 rivers.
The average person eats 70,000 microplastics each year.
Plastic is dangerous: Whales that starve with a full stomach, because they have eaten indigestible plastic . Seals with centimeter deep wounds by plastic waste, which cut them deeper and deeper into the flesh.
'Ghost gear,' the result of fishing vessels abandoning or losing their fishing nets, lines, and other gear in the ocean–which then cause major problems for marine life and kills millions of Dolphins, Whales, Sharks, Seaturtles, Seals, Seabirds.
Plastic is durable, but in the course time porous and disintegrates into smaller and smaller fragments.
Marine litter is a global problem that affects every ocean in the world. Litter is an environmental, human health and socio-economic problem that is a symptom of a highly disposable society.
With worldwide growth in the amount of solid litter thrown away every day, combined with the slow rates of degradation, the amount of litter ending up in the marine environment is increasing.
Each year at least 8 million tonnes of plastics leak into the oceans:
Paper ,textile, glass, rubber, wood, metal, ceramics, plastics.
