The Raw Truth

Depressing, but the reality of why we do what we do.. It ain't pretty.


(Ok will stop shouting at you now)...

Here are a few facts: 

➡️Plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean's surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile.

➡️Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century.

➡️Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times.

➡️Plastic in the ocean breaks down into such small segments that pieces of plastic from a one litre bottle could end up on every mile of beach throughout the world.

➡️Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.

➡️The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is located in the North Pacific Gyre off the coast of California and is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. This floating mass of plastic is twice the size of Texas, with plastic pieces outnumbering sea life six to one.

➡️Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated).
