PLASTIC: Marine Animal Extinction is the Real Cost of Convenience

-Globally, we produce 300 million tons of plastic every year, 78 percent of which is NOT reclaimed or recycled.

-Around 8.8 million tons of plastic get dumped into the oceans every year!

-700 marine animals are faced with extinction due to the threat that plastic poses to them in the form of entanglement, pollution, and ingestion.

-50 percent of sea turtles have plastic in their stomachs.

-By 2050, 99 percent of all seabird species will have ingested plastic waste.
