The impact of our cleanup
The impact of our clean up initiative to create OWP for new packaging is significant. But it can be even better – with your help.
Every year 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans. But, even though that is a high number, we are on our way. Currently, on a yearly basis, we collect and re-use 1,400 tons of Ocean Waste Plastic. That number will increase every year.
It can be difficult to estimate how much 1,400 tons of plastic actually is. We know. It is equivalent to 50,000,000 500 ml. water bottles collected every single year.
