Plastic have invaded our oceans! And the number one access route is through Rivers.
Every day 8 million pieces of plastic makes its way into the ocean. There is a giant plastic gyre called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch that is larger than the state of Texas. And by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish! Gross!
Non profit, The Ocean Cleanup recent study found that 80% of our ocean plastics come from roughly 1000 rivers around the globe. See how The Ocean Cleanup is taking charge by cleaning up polluted rivers. Together we can make a difference! Let's reduce, reuse and pick up plastic waste before they make their way out to sea. You'll be beautifying mother nature while you're at it too.
