Plastic pollution and single-use plastic is one of the biggest challenges the ocean faces today.
100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1,000,000 sea birds loose their life annually due to ingestion, suffocation, entanglement and poisoning.
8,000,000 tonnes of plastic pollution enters the ocean each year and production is set to double by 2050. Currently only 9% of plastic created since the 1950's has been recycled meaning we have to stop our consumption of it.
Salty Projects aims to bring plastic pollution awareness to communities promoting sustainable alternatives and simple steps individuals, businesses, and communities can take to rid their lives of plastic waste.
We want to encourage people to 'Think Salty' (about ocean protection) remembering that no matter where a person lives #everythingleadstothesea.
