Plastic Bottles
        &
Ocean Pollution
Oceans make up
97% of Earth’s water
Oceans feed us and sustain us
Most of the oxygen in our
atmosphere is generated by the sea
Oceans drive our
climate and weather
Our very lives depend on the ocean
Yet we’re poisoning the ocean with
hundreds of millions of tons of plastic
Over 2 million plastic beverage
bottles are used every 5 minutes
in the U.S.
As little asas
   As little 10%
of plastic bottles
   10% of
  are recycled
   plastic
   bottles are
   recycled
The rest end up in landfills
or in our oceans
There is a garbage patch twice the
size of Texas in the North Pacific
100 million marine mammals and
turtles in the north Pacific are killed
every year by plastic in the ocean
70-100% of North Pacific sea birds
are affected by eating plastic. This
albatross starved to death because it
ate too much plastic trash.
Plastic fragments concentrate
pollutants up to one million times
ambient levels in sea water - making
ingested plastic into poison pills
So what?
Think the ocean isn’t important?
Imagine Earth without it
Plastic is killing the ocean
Plastic is poisoning the fish you eat
The fish you eat have likely ingested
contaminated plastic.
Nature can no longer produce
organic fish in the ocean.
What can YOU do?
Stop using
plastic
beverage
bottles!
8.8 billion gallons of bottled water
were consumed in the U.S. in 2007
That’s 232 16 oz. bottles
per person a year
Only a small
fraction
are recycled
Up to 63.4 BILLION plastic bottles
are dumped into landfills and the
ocean a year
That’s 173,589,041
bottles every day
120,548
plastic bottles
end up in
landfills or
the ocean
every minute
THE
CHALLENGE
Use reusable
water bottles
filled with
filtered tap
water
If each person in the U.S. replaced
their disposable bottled water
with a reusable container filled with
tap water, we’d keep BILLIONS of
plastic water bottles out of the ocean
It’s easy to do
It will help save the ocean
It will save you money
