On current trends, by 2050 there could be more plastics in the world's waters than fishes, measured by weight.
It takes 450 years to nature to break down a plastic bottle into micro plastic pieces, finally going into animal or fishes’ stomachs. 80% of seabirds worldwide would have already ingested plastic pieces.
There are cleanup projects, great initiatives, possibilities to recycle plastic much more than we do now and invent the circular economy of tomorrow, to make ecosystems still sustainable, preserve nature and sea life.
Our entire planet is living. Nature, oceans, the animals and all the living beings that populate it represent millions of years of evolution. They must be saved just like us.
