Plastic Smog Alert: 5 Gyres Research Reveals 170 Trillion Plastic Particles are Afloat at Sea
SIMA Environmental Fund beneficiary, The 5 Gyres Institute, recently published a research paper revealing there are more than 170 trillion plastic particles, weighing approximately 2 million tonnes, afloat in the world’s oceans.
The stakes are high. Trillions of microplastic fragments are swirling in our oceans, throughout the biosphere, and in our bodies. We can’t let the issue continue to run rampant for another 50 years; it’s time for us, as a collective planet, to make a change.
