The world is drowning in plastic pollution
Our planet is drowning in plastic pollution. That’s why Stichting Aquarius organise each year the Nationale World Water Dag River Clean Up since 2008.
One million plastic bottles a minute
Plastic can be very usefull but some how we got addicted to single-use plastics. We purchase every minute one million plastic drinking bottles and up to 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used worldwide every year.
Actually half of all plastic produced is designed to be used only once and then thrown away. Today, we produce about 300 million tonnes of plastic waste every year. That’s nearly equivalent to the weight of the entire human population.
