Oceans are the lungs of our planet, the lifeblood of humankind. The air that you breathe, the water your drink, the food you eat, the products that keep you warm, safe, informed, and entertained - all can come from or be transported by the ocean.
SHOCKING STATISTICS SHOW THAT:
- We have produced more plastic in the last 10 years than we did in the whole of the last century?
- Every single plastic bottle you throw away takes approximately 450 years to fully decompose?
- Over 100.000 marine mammals and 1 million seabirds die every year from ingestion or entanglement in plastic liter?
And as terrifying as that discovery is, it's really not, since over 8 million tons of plastic enter the world's oceans every year.
"NO MATTER HOW FAR FROM THE SHORE YOU LIVE, OCEANS STILL AFFECT YOUR LIFE AND THE LIVES OF YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS, CLASSMATES AND COLLEAGUES."
If each one of us took small daily actions, we could make an effect towards preserving our planet for future generations. Changing that disposable water bottle to reausable EQUA bottle will not only have a positive effect on your wellbeing, but will drastically improve your environmental impact too! Start today and beat plastic pollution. Together we can make this work!
