Plastic Bottle Recovery
Ocean Bound Plastic Clean Up
$1 (£0.78) captures 100 plastic bottles worth of ocean bound plastic
About the Cause
Ocean plastic pollution poses a grave threat to marine ecosystems and the overall health of our planet. Discarded plastic items like single-use bottles find their way into the oceans, where they persist for centuries, breaking down into smaller particles known as microplastics. These pollutants wreak havoc on marine life, causing entanglement, ingestion, and disruption of natural behaviors. The toxic chemicals associated with plastics further harm aquatic organisms and can eventually enter the human food chain. The sheer scale of ocean plastic pollution demands urgent attention and comprehensive solutions to mitigate its detrimental effects on marine environments.
However, by capturing these single use plastics before they enter waterways we can work to protect our oceans and waterways.
The Plastic Bottle recovery cause supports organisations like Seven Clean Seas and Plastics for Change to protect our oceans by capturing plastic by weight (10 grams of plastic recovered = the equivalent of one single use plastic bottle).
