The oceans are plastic!

Some of the latest statistics on how much the world’s oceans are soaking up humanity’s obsession with plastic are truly staggering and alarming.

Experts believe that 8 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans every single year. Or one rubbish truck’s worth every single minute.

Today scientists believe the ocean’s contain some 25 trillion pieces of microplastics.

73 per cent of all fish tested in the North Atlantic contain microplastics.

Clams, muscles, oysters and scallops which filter water for their food contain the highest concentration of microplastics.

Only 9 per cent of all the plastic ever discarded has been recycled – the rest remains in the environment for hundreds – if not thousands of years before it breaks down into microplastics.
