More than 8,000,000 tonnes of plastic enters the world's oceans each year, affecting the sea and the marine life inside. And if this continues, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. Not to mention, each time we'll sit down to eat a meal, more than 100 pieces of the same microplastic will fall onto our plates. So, it's only up to us to change that.
''Disposable plastic. A material, designed to last forever, for products designed to last minutes.''
In celebration of World Earth Day, EQUA partnered up with National Geographic Slovenia to raise awareness about the problem that is affecting us all and inspire you to commit and make a change, together with us. Together, we announced the video for their ''Planet or Plastic'' campaign, to shed a light on the global plastic pollution crisis and inspire you to care about your surroundings.
''Because only together, we can get closer to the change that matters and past the edge of what's possible.''
Our dream is to live in an environment where reusables are seen as a resource and not waste. And if only one person switches to using a reusable water bottle, 217 disposable plastic bottles can be saved from going to a landfill that same year.
The final station of single-use plastic pollution is not the sea and animals, but humanity, so think before you drink!
