The Problem

Marine plastic pollution is a consequence of people thinking:

It's only one piece of plastic, what harm can it do?

The sea is vast, rubbish will not affect it adversely.

My life is not affected by plastics in the oceans.

Climate change has nothing to do with marine plastics.

The Reality

But the truth of the matter is:

There is over 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the sea and counting.

Plastics are in the food chain!

1/3 of all fish caught off UK shores have plastics in them.

Seafood eaters ingest up to 11,000 tiny pieces of plastic every year with dozens of particles becoming embedded in human tissues.

The degradation and breakdown of plastic represents a previously unrecognized source of greenhouse gases.
