The Ugly Journey of our Trash is a great infographic showing the devasting effects our litter and plastic waste has on our planet and particularly our oceans.
Key facts include:
- Global annual plastic production has boomed from 1.7 million tonnes in 1950 to almost 300 million
- 250 million metric tonnes of plastic could make its way into the ocean by 2025
- 95% of northern fulmars washed up dead in the North Sea had ingested plastic debris
The infographic was produced by the Project AWARE Foundation, a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet.
