The World Economic Forum finished a study this year on plastics in the sea. Their conclusion? By 2015 there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.
According to Dr. Sylvia Earle, marine biologist and founder of Mission Blue, plastic bag pollution is a scourge that is afflicting our oceans but there are things we can do to change that: “Now that we know the astonishing amount of plastic that enters the ocean each year, we can act. People around the globe can stand up, armed with knowledge, and demand an end to disposable plastic and mismanaged waste.”
You can support the health of the ocean by choosing to use non-toxic, biodegradable skincare and by reducing your household’s plastic waste. Join the petition against plastic bags & let’s get plastic out of the ocean!
