The Ugly Journey Of Our Trash

Sep. 13/11

Did you know that a staggering 250 million metric tons of plastic could make its way to the ocean in the next 10 years? One of the reasons Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers is to help build a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life. With this knowledge, we can make more effective decisions when it comes to waste management policies.

Marine debris comes from many land and ocean sources. Check out the infographic below and follow The Ugly Journey of our Trash to learn how different kinds of debris threaten marine life.
