Every year, up to 8.3 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our oceans.
That’s a truckload every minute! It is killing marine life and threatening precious ecosystems. The sea is choking and can’t cope.
Plastic bags and micro-plastics among many other sorts are directly linked to killing marine life like turtles and dolphins, which mistake them for food and eat them.
Together, we can turn the tide. As a first step, we are calling on people to start their own campaign with the support of us here at Greenpeace.
