Our ocean may appear vast but our devastating human footprint is found everywhere, with plastic found in the deepest ocean and your local beach.

Plastic pollution is one of the greatest challenges our ocean is facing right now. Not only does it make our beaches look dirty, but it is affecting marine animals, birds, sea plants and is even having a detrimental effect on our health too. By tackling plastic pollution, both in the short and long term, we can ensure a cleaner, healthier ocean for all.

The key types of plastic pollution which affect our ocean are single-use plastics which range from water bottles to carrier bags, and microplastics which are found in every day products such as cosmetics, clothing and even toothpaste. Smoking products which are designed to be disposed of such as cigarette butts and disposable vapes are also becoming a major cause of plastic pollution too.
