It is shocking to imagine the world where our use of plastic is leading to:

  • Seas containing 500 times more micro plastic particles than stars in our galaxy
  • Plastic fibers being present in 83% of the world’s tap water and 90% of the world’s most popular bottled water brands
  • Widespread contamination of fish in our food chain
  • Seas with more plastic than fish by 2050

This is the reality of the situation we are facing today, and yet it only scratches the surface of the challenges ahead of us.
