Reduce Plastic Pollution

Each year, at least 8 million tons of plastics leak into the ocean. That's the equivalent of emptying a garbage truck into the ocean every minute.

Imagine how this affects habitats, ecosystems and marine biodiversity. Unless we make changes, it's estimated that by the year 2050, 99% of seabirds will have ingested plastic, and plastic in our oceans may outweigh the fish that call them home. Let's change the future. Together, let's take action to reduce our reliance upon plastics.

So what can we do?
