DID YOU KNOW?

More than 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year.

That’s like dumping one New York City garbage truck full of plastic into the ocean every minute of every day for an entire year. That is 525,600 dump trucks of plastic waste being added to the 5 trillion pieces of plastic already in the ocean. Oceans are primary sources of food, jobs, and economic development and as Global Citizens, we must do everything that we can to protect them.

As a Global Citizen, you know that your actions and your choices have an incredible impact on the world. That’s why we’re asking you to take practical steps to ensure plastic waste does not end up in the ocean, by reusing, recycling, and reducing your plastic consumption and waste.
