With pollution there is no ‘gone’. There is nowhere for the waste that we produce to go. It takes thousands of years to ‘break down’ into micro pieces before it finds its way into our food chain. Plastic was hailed as one of the greatest inventions of its time, it has now come back to haunt us as one of the highest pollutants in the modern era.
It’s not just our oceans; the whole planet is facing the highest level of peril, with extinction of the human race becoming a very real possibility unless concrete action is taken. History will judge us on the actions we have taken, the legacy we leave behind.
Please see below for a selection of projects that are open to participation.
By 2050 there could me more plastic in the ocean than fish, with 100% of marine animals suffering from plastic indigestion.
