Plastic Fantastic

Every minute, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans. This negative trend is only set to increase in the coming decades. It is one of the greatest challenges of our time – and one that coming generations will pay the price for.

A change of attitude towards plastics is required at all levels, in addition to an increased focus on cleaning and following up the oceans.
