Turning the Tide on Plastic : How Humanity (And You) Can Make Our Globe Clean Again

Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the world 4 times. More than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans each year. 300 million tonnes of new plastic is produced every year. An estimated 15-51 trillion pieces of plastic now litter the world's oceans.

38.5 million plastic bottles are used every day in the UK. A million plastic bottles are used per minute around the world. 500 million plastic straws are used per year.

Without big action, at the current rate, pieces of plastic will outnumber fish in the ocean by 2050. That is the legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren.
