Our society has the plastic tap turned on. Shoppers world wide are using over 500 billion single use plastics every year. Thats over 150 plastic bags for every person on Earth. And it's getting worse. Every day 8 million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans. A recent study found there to be over 5 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. 100,000 marine creatures a year die from plastic entanglement and these are the ones found. It is our goal to make the ocean a cleaner place by giving back 10% of all net profits to our nonprofit partners whose visions and goals are aligned with ours.
