We Made the Plastic, Now We're Drowning In It
We made plastic,
we depend on plastic,
but now we're drowning in plastic.
More than 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year, equal to dumping a garbage truck of plastic every minute. As much as 80 percent of all litter in our oceans is made of plastic.
In our everyday life, we're depending too much on plastic without knowing that it does not easily decompose. Plastic isn’t biodegradable, which accentuates the threat of lingering plastic waste for years and for generations to come.
Plastic threatens the existence of life underwater right from smaller fishes to huge mammals and amphibians in several ways. Reports say that around one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed every year due to plastic ingestion. Unfortunately, several marine species are on the verge of extinction because of such type of ocean pollution.
Be a part of the solution, not part of the pollution.
