Waste produced by human activities over the past several years has been responsible for increasing pollution all over the globe, including marine or ocean pollution.

Recent surveys indicated that:

  • Approximately 15% of the waste entering the Oceans keeps floating.
  • Approximately 15% of the waste entering the Oceans washes up on shores and coastal regions.
  • Approximately 70% of the waste entering the Oceans sinks and accumulates on the ocean floor.
