CLEAN UP

The oceans may contain more plastic than fish by weight in 2050.

Help us to remove plastic from the environment.

Plastic pollution is the accumulation of plastic objects and particles in the Earth’s environment.

About 380 million tons of plastic are produced worldwide each year. From the 1950s up to 2018, an estimated 6.3 billion tons of plastic have been produced worldwide, of which an estimated 9% has been recycled.

On average, a plastic shopping bag is used for just 12 minutes, and we all use 5 trillion plastic bags… per year!
That’s 160,000 a second!
