Stop the Plastic Soup

For the first time, it’s calculated how much plastic ends in the oceans: at least 5 billion tons a year.

Nineteen times more than thought.

  • Without measures, the plastic soup will increased thirty times in 2025! 
  • For certain marine animal populations, almost every animal has plastic in its stomach
  • And every year, 8 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean

In this dossier, you will find blogs about ‘what’s going on’ and what you can do to stop the ocean’s pollution.
