When we think of the ocean most of us think of crystal-clear water and sunshine, but in reality, we are faced with a huge problem. It is estimated that there are six times more plastic than plankton in our oceans. The larger part of ocean pollution starts on land and is carried by wind, rain and rivers to the sea.
Did you know it takes one milk carton five years to biodegrade, and a fishing net six hundred years? Producing material from ocean waste reduces landfills and keeps this plastic from getting back into the ocean.
