By 2050 there will more plastic in the ocean than fish

We can all do our part to cut down on plastic...

Plastic Pollution

Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than in the whole of the last century! The global problem of plastic is escalating out of control – a rubbish-truck load is dumped into the ocean every minute and by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Although plastic can be recycled, only 24% of the five million tonnes of plastic used in the UK every year is recycled or re-used; we urgently need to rethink how we are using plastic.
