Our oceans are in more trouble than ever before. Right now it is estimated that up to 12 million metric tons of plastic – everything from plastic bottles and bags to microbeads – ends up in our oceans each year. That’s a truckload of trash every minute. Traveling on ocean currents, this plastic is now turning up in every corner of our planet. It is even being found trapped in Arctic ice. Scientists say the wave of extinction facing the ocean in the coming century could be catastrophic. If we don’t change the way we do things, and fast, we are on track to cause irreversible damage to the ocean and the collapse of some of the most important food sources in the world. Big corporations need to act to reduce their plastic footprint – and stop producing plastic packaging that is designed to be used once then thrown away. We have a say in this as consumers. We need to demand alternatives to plastic and reduced packaging waste from business around the globe. Healthy oceans are the life support system for our planet, providing 97 percent of the Earth’s livable habitat and a home to more than 700,000 species. The oceans are vital to human health as well, providing jobs, enjoyment and food to billions of people. Half of the oxygen we breathe is generated by our oceans. We need to keep our oceans healthy thus preserving the health of the planet and all life on earth. -
