Our oceans are in trouble.
Careless activities by people, at sea and on land, have created the dire state of the oceans today:
• Routine activities on land and water contribute to 6.4 million tons of debris entering the ocean every year
• In the US, littering accounts for the majority marine debris that originates from land
• Plastic debris is especially dangerous, because it does not degrade and poses swallowing and entanglement threats to marine life
