In November of 2018 in Indonesia, a dead young sperm whale was found with 115 plastic cups, 2 flip-flops, 4 plastic bottles, 25 plastic bags, and more than 1000 other assorted pieces of plastic in its stomach.  Researchers from the wildlife conservation group (WWF) found approximately 5.9 kilograms of plastic in the whale’s stomach. This is not the first act of plastic killing whales.

More than 400 whales were recorded dead in 2018 with plastic in their stomach. Plastic isn’t just killing whales.  There has been over 1 million deaths of turtles, sharks, and fish from plastic every year. More than 50% of turtles have consumed plastic. At least 8 million tons of plastic enters the ocean every year. The average citizen consumes 167 plastic water bottles each year, but recycles only 25%. The amount of plastic in the world’s oceans could increase by 10% in the next 7 years.

The more pollution that is produced, the faster global warming will increase. Which means that homes and communities won’t be livable sooner. If we can come up with a solution we can stop ocean pollution.

Every signature we will take 10 pieces of plastic from the ocean. With your help we will not only save the marine life, but also save our future.
