World Wildlife Fund has launched a brilliant anti-plastic campaign!
On average people could be ingesting around 5 grams of plastic every week, which is the equivalent weight of a credit card. The study suggests people could be consuming on average over 100,000 microplastics every year. That’s approximately 21 grams a month, just over 250 grams a year
How is this happening?
Eight million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year. They break down into tiny bits called microplastics, small enough to enter our food chain, along with other types of microplastics like those that are released when we wash our clothes.
