In 2015, global plastic consumption was a staggering 448 million tons.
There are approximately 9 billion tons of total plastic in the world today. Of that 9 billion plus tons of plastic, 6.9 billion tons are now waste, and over 6 billion tons of that waste has never seen the inside of a recycling bin.
Six billion tons of unrecycled waste. Where does it go? It’s difficult to estimate how much ends up in the vast depths of our world’s oceans, but conservative estimates are about 10 million tons per year. Much of this plastic is the result of careless littering on land that is in turn blown into the sea.
As a result of all of this non-biodegradable waste, hundreds of ocean species have been adversely affected. Fish nibble on microplastics, while other marine animals are caught in soda rings and discarded fishing lines. The resulting damage from this massive amount of waste could be catastrophic for our oceans.
Together, we can make a difference.
