Two garbage trucks' worth of plastic

enters the oceans every minute.

The world is facing a plastic pollution crisis that is increasingly threatening the future of our planet. An estimated 33 billion pounds of plastic enter the ocean every year — that's roughly the equivalent of dumping two garbage trucks full of plastic into the oceans every minute.

The problem is too big for consumers to solve. With plastic production rates increasing and the plastics industry persistently relying on inadequate solutions like recycling, we're looking at an alarmingly plastic-filled future — unless companies and policy-makers use their power to change course. 

We need companies to dramatically reduce their production of this everlasting pollutant and provide us with plastic-free choices, and we need policy-makers to pass legislation that ensures they do so.
