Such is the extent of Earth’s mind-boggling plastic problem that last year (2017) at the World Economic Forum it was found that the equivalent of a garbage truck’s worth of plastic bottles were being dumped into the ocean every minute. If this statistic doesn’t shock you maybe this will- the amount of plastic in our oceans, when stacked upon one another in bottles, would surpass the distance to the sun. That’s more than 150 million kilometers of plastic that instead ends up in our oceans. Though this data can be crushing, we believe it is our duty to take responsibility of our actions and answer nature’s call of duty to amend this problem.
