HERE ARE THE PROBLEMS OUR PLANET FACE

  • 400 million tons of plastic is produced every year.
  • 40% of that plastic is single use: plastic we will only use once.
  • 8 million tons of plastic trash ends in our oceans every year.
  • A plastic bottle takes at least 450 to 1.000 years to completely degrade

The ocean currents have formed five
gigantic, slow moving whirlpools
