As we are all very aware, the amount of plastic that consumes our ocean each year is shocking and quite frankly, scary. To put things into perspective , of the 260 million tons of plastic that is produced each year, around 10 percent of it ends up in the ocean. It may not sound like much at first but 10 percent of 260 million tons is awful, around 70% of the debris will sink into the ocean’s ecosystem.
To help combat the problem which is slowly killing and affecting our ocean life we can all come together to make a huge difference. The best way that you can personally help is reducing your plastic consumption by purchasing products that are made to last for example, buying bamboo or steel coffee cups that you can use time and time again, purchasing strong shopping bags instead of buying plastic bags each time you go shopping and purchasing products that are made from recyclable materials will not only benefit you but will benefit companies that make these products and allow them to carry on producing more.
If you are keen on purchasing products that are unique and like no other, then these recycled dog leashes from Project Blu are going to amaze you.
