A GROWING THREAT
The oceans face a massive and growing threat from
something you encounter everyday: plastics.
An estimated 17.6 billion pounds of plastic leaks into the marine environment
from land-based sources every year—this is roughly equivalent to dumping
a garbage truck full of plastic into the oceans every minute.
