Plastic Pollution has become a man-made global catastrophe. Over the last 60 years plastic has become central to our lives and as a result mankind has subjected the planet to a tsunami of plastic waste. The scale of the problem is exponential - in the last 10 years the World has used more plastic than it did in the previous 100 years. In New York City alone, 24 million plastic bottles are discarded every week and in 2010 alone we will produce around 300 million tonnes of plastic; the ridiculous thing is that 50% of it will be used just once.
Plastic Oceans is dedicated to trying to solve the problems from the perspectives of Global waste, energy consumption, environmental impact and health. It will provide a platform that will offer educational programmes, social networking such as this, possible solutions and support in funding those developments, campaigns and fundraising. Key to the Foundation will be the production of a hard hitting documentary. Plastic Oceans has brought together a team of the worlds top scientists and leading film makers to produce a powerful high-end film in full high definition. Through worldwide distribution, we intend to make the world sit up and take notice. The film will raise awareness, promote scientific research and initiate the development of solutions to the problem of plastics in our environment.
