    So how much did you know?

    Every year humans produce over 300 million tons of plastic. This comes from mainly land based products, bad waste management, and a continuous increment in unsustainable plastic production. Every year at least 8 million tons of plastic gets thrown into the sea. Floating plastic is currently the highest amount of marine litter. Waste plastic makes up 80% of all marine debris from surface waters to the sediments. Plastic has been found coming from shorelines of all the continents. The clock is ticking, but to improve this all the three options mentioned above are possible solutions. The best thing would be apply all of them. This is important again for all three reasons, because this comports humans, animals and our planet.
