More plastic than fish by the year 2050 - Can the 4Ocean Bracelet turn back the tide of plastic pollution Posted on 9 Jul 11:01
The 4Ocean Bracelet is a pledge to pull a single pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines within 12 months of purchase. The sale of these bracelets generates the core funds to maintain the 4Ocean mission to globally reverse the damage that has been done to our environment. However, just how big is the problem?
According to figures from a new report by the World Economic Forum, The New Plastics Economy Rethinking the future of plastics, there is a bin lorry of plastic dumped into our ocean every minute.
A copy of the report can be downloaded here The New Plastics Economy, Rethinking the future of plasticsIf we continue to do nothing about this, it will increase to two lorry loads per minute by 2030 and then four per minute by 2050. By 2050, this could mean there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans.
If you would like help combat this, then you can purchase a 4Ocean Bracelet, as every bracelet sold will not only remove 1 pound of trash from the ocean and coastline but will help fund the various campaigns of their monthly environmental causes.
