Our Contribution

By 2050, there could be more plastic swimming in the ocean than fish. At least, that is the status of current studies. Of billions of tons of plastic, not even 10% has been recycled so far. According to estimates, we already have a 1:2 ratio between plastic and plankton. Plankton makes up about 95% of the biomass in the oceans and is the basis of all life in the sea. Plastic, on the other hand, kills millions of marine life every year.

Iceberg Plastic
JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG ...

On average, we Europeans generate over 35 kg of plastic waste per year per capita. That's more than 11,600 plastic cups (180ml) for each of us. For example, in 2018, 61.8 million tons or 20,600,000 plastic cups were consumed. Lined up side by side, that would be a distance of over 13,700 soccer fields.

... EVERY GRAM IS FATAL ...

The really bad thing about plastic is that every single cup, every inconspicuous bag is fatal! Rainwater, wind, floods, but also wrong disposal carry plastic waste from the land to the oceans. The plastic waste creates whole plastic islands in the ocean. And these will sooner or later become the doom of all marine life.
