The State of Single Use Plastic Bottles: Infographic
If anyone is qualified to talk about the state of our oceans it's Sir David Attenborough. He's dedicated his life to nature and inspired us all through his incredibly eye-opening documentaries including the award winning Blue Planet and Blue Planet II.
'We have to act. We have to act now to try and clear up some of the appalling damage we have made to the ocean...and that is going to require positive action.'
Blue Planet II did an amazing job of raising awareness of the sheer amount of plastic pollution in our seas and oceans. With stats like these, 4 million tonnes of single use plastic ends up in our oceans each year, no wonder Sir David is urging us to take positive action.
It can be really easy to see stats like the following and think 'those number are so big, my contribution won't make a difference'. It's going to take all of us doing our part to help save our seas. Switching to a reusable water bottle and or a reusable coffee cup is just one of the small changes that each one of us can make. This simple action can make a huge difference over time.
Are you willing to make a positive change for the sake of our oceans?
