Plastic production has soared over the last 50 years, with pollution becoming a global epidemic and one of the top concerns for ocean health. More than 80 billion bottles per year are cast adrift into our oceans and landfills with each bottle taking more than 400 years to decompose. This is equivalent to the weight of 800 Eiffel Towers, and enough to cover Manhattan 34 times over (1). This pollution is so serious that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the world's oceans (2). We don’t want to stand still, we want our attitude to inspire change.
