Plastic waste pollution is a massive issue at the moment affecting our communities, our oceans and the majority of our natural environment!
We have a love hate relationship with plastic. It is extremely useful for everyday life but with an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans today, change needs to happen to help solve this issue. Recent papers published in Science and Nature highlight the shocking fact that about 8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year. This vast amount of waste has resulted in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a mass of plastic waste in the ocean which is larger than the state of Texas! The facts speak for themselves. Something needs to be done at a collective level to help solve this. How we can we all pitch in? The answer: recycle more at home!
