Every single piece of plastic ever made still exists. One garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our ocean every minute. It’s estimated that by 2050 almost all species of seabirds will have plastic inside their digestive system, and there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish. One million seabirds and 100,000 mammals and sea turtles die annualy due to plastics.
There is no nice story to tell. We are responsible for our choices, and only proper choices can change the future. Until we change this reality, the idylic vision of a surfing paradise is corrupted – and the promised land of our dreams is corrupted.
