Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our ocean. 

Every minute plastic is dumped into our ocean.

Let that sink in.

While you’re mulling over how humanity could let it get this far, here are some quick facts on why protecting the ocean is a number one priority.

It produces 50% of the oxygen we breathe.

It absorbs 25% of all carbon dioxide emissions.

It is our greatest ally against climate change.

But plastic pollution has taken over our oceans.

2 billion people in coastal regions worldwide don’t have access to proper waste management.

In regions without waste collection, trash is either openly burned, dumped or piled onto poorly managed landfills, from where it eventually makes its way into nature.

Mismanaged plastic waste at this scale has a massive impact on our climate:

Open burning of waste has a significant climate impact, equivalent to 2–10% of global CO2Eq emissions.

Waste in landfills releases methane, a greenhouse gas 28 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

Marine microplastic hinders the ocean’s natural ability to remove carbon from the atmosphere.

and that's just the tip of the plastic-berg...

...we are suffocating in plastic.

How to stop this mayhem?

Plastic pollution is solved on land, not in the sea.

We need to build waste management systems where they don’t yet exist, to stop plastic waste before it gets burned, or ends up in landfills or oceans.

We need to use the best methods for treating plastic in the region where it’s collected and process it in the most environmentally sustainable way available.

That’s where CleanHub comes in.
