This is what the plastic Ocean Foundation has to say about our use of plastic:- More »

Every year we are producing more than 300 million tons of plastic, half of this is designed for single use, and each year around 8 million tons of it ends up in our oceans. Plastic Oceans is working to change the way we deal with plastic waste by challenging society's perception that this indestructible substance can be treated as 'disposable'.

Described by Sir David Attenborough as "one of the most important films of our time", A Plastic Ocean is a documentary that shows the crisis facing our ocean from our disposable lifestyle. An international team of adventurers, researchers, and ocean ambassadors go on a mission around the globe to uncover the shocking truth about what is truly lurking beneath the surface of our seemingly pristine ocean. It brings to light the consequences of our global disposable lifestyle and shows never-before-seen images of marine life, plastic pollution, and its ultimate consequences for human health. » Less
