Plastics have become an essential part of our everyday life. We can find it in product packaging, clothing, cosmetics, construction materials... 

Plastic has become so important, that its production rates have increased dramatically in the last years. So much that only in the last decade we have produced more plastic than in the whole of the last century

In fact it's predicted that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea.  

Every year 

8 million tonnes

of plastic gets dumped into the ocean

There are already more than

700 sealife species 

eating or trapped in plastic


Most plastic products are only

used once

before beeing thrown away

At Oceans4Life we are trying to reduce the impact plastics have on the oceans and our health. Click to find out what we do and how to get involved
