8 MILLION tons of plastic are dumped into our ocean each year. More than a quarter of all fish now contain microplastics which not only harms them but also exposes us to these harmful and toxic chemicals🐟
Have you ever heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?
If the answer is no, please look it up. 🙈
Think there's nothing you can do about this bad globally existential problem ? Wrong. 👍🏽There are plenty of great organizations like @4ocean who help clear our 7 seas from plastic waste; they protect sea life & eventually our lives.
With each product you buy at 4Ocean for instance, i.e. a bracelet, they remove one pound of trash from the ocean. Every little helps!💪🏽
Also, being conscious about ur plastic waste!
The recent film set I worked on called Little Joe set a great example and gave us all at the start of the shoot some funky bottles that we were to keep and use for the entire shoot! Not a plastic bottle chucked in sight! What bloody legends ❤️ Life on Earth came from the sea, so let's not destroy it, the planet and us with waste like plastic.
Here are some organizations & people who are doing some brill things if you're interested:
