Plastic has accumulated in huge quantities throughout the ocean - even in deep-sea areas previously thought to be untouched by humans. Between 4.8 and 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year, according to figures published in the journal Science in 2015. These figures show just hoe bad the problem is, but it doesn't have to be this way. By signing this petition you are apart of the solution and hopefully we can get government officials to recognise and act upon the problem.

We, as a community call upon the governments of the world to take proper action and stop plastic pollution in our oceans.
