The Plastics Breakdown: An Infographic


We've been posting on plastic ocean pollution all week in advance of International Coastal Cleanup Day, happening tomorrow. It's an amazing event that removes literally tons of plastic from coastlines and waterways around the world every year.

Trash, and specifically plastic, in the ocean is a huge issue and it's fixable if we all tune in to our plastic use.

Many people don't realize how big the problem is, or how harmful plastic is to sea life, so we made an infographic to lay it all out. Click here to download the PDF (10MB) or the image below to view full size.
