Series Two, Episode One
Why Is Single Use Plastic A Problem?
By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish! Now thats a shocking statement. Unfortunately it’s not just a scare tactic to help you remember your keep cup in the morning but is a completely accurate prediction based on our current rates of consumption. According to Greenpeace we dump around 12 million tonnes of plastic into our oceans each year. Most of it is washed into the sea from land, making its way through water ways to end up in the ocean. Others are so small you can’t see them.
Micro plastics have been discovered in the stomachs of sea life, and so inadvertently as fish eaters, it’s also in our stomachs too. Single use plastic is undeniably a huge problem, but the good news is that you have the power to change this. If we all make some small changes and use less plastic, the result could be transformative for our environment.
