Around 19 billion pounds of garbage end up in our oceans every year. It's everywhere, and it's a massive problem. Much of this waste problem is from single use plastics. These plastics kill marine life, destroy the natural beauty that soothes the vacationing spirit, and is ingested by animals, including humans.
By 2025 -only seven years from now- the 19 billion pounds of garbage in our oceans is expected to double.
