It can take up to 300 years for plastic to decompose but even after that, it never really goes away
Over 100,000 marine animals die every year from plastic entanglement and ingestion. More than 50 percent of sea turtles have consumed plastic
91% of the world’s plastic bottles are not recycled
Our mission at Young Ocean Advocates is to improve ocean conservation by connecting and empowering the youth population to help create a world that they want to see. By providing the younger generation with the resources they need to start their own beach cleanups, we are bridging the gap between activism, advocacy, and action.
Youth may be 25% of the world’s population, but we are 100% of the future
Here are some resources that shed light on amazing things that people are doing to fight for cleaner oceans!
