The world - surrounded with five - seven enormous plastic gyres / garbage patches, filled by
our trash and formed
by ocean currents.
Only 12% of waste will be recycled, the rest lands in landfills and the ocean.
Day by day millions of plastics land in our oceans, fill the marine animals and reach the coastlines. The epi centre is not only in China, its everywhere and affect us!
