PLASTIC FACTS
(but we CAN turn the tide)

WHO WE ARE

By the Ocean
we Unite

Coming soon! Join us on Expedition Scotland 2017 and learn all about plastic pollution and solutions firsthand whilst sailing deep into the heart of magnificent nature!

Sailing expeditions for cleaner oceans

Plastic pollution has become one of the greatest environmental challenges of our time. On average eight billion kilos plastic ends up in our oceans every year – that is 23.000 kilos every single minute. We no longer want to be on the sidelines.

By the Ocean we Unite contributes to preventing more plastic from ending up in our oceans. We conduct research, create awareness, educate and activate people, organisations and governments to make much needed changes. Through partnerships worldwide we increase our positive impact. Join us on our journey and help protecting our oceans, the animals and ourselves from plastic pollution.

”The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” – Jacques Cousteau
“..do something about it, a great begin is to start looking at your own behavior regarding the usage of plastic.” – ambassador Bouwe Bekking

THE MAGNITUDE

OF MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION

0 Percent
of marine plastic pollution is currently missing. Possible causes: it has sunk, fragmentated into tiny particles or washed up on beaches.*

In 0
the weight of marine plastic pollution may well approach that of all fish in the oceans.*

*The figures presented here are based on extrapolations and should be viewed with a critical eye, as it is impossible to measure all plastics or fish in the oceans. They however do give a perspective on the sheer size of the marine plastic pollution issue we face today.
