According to sources more than 8million tonnes of plastic is being dumped into the Oceans which is equivalent to dumping a truck of plastic every minute.
The UN launched a world wide war against plastic pollution by starting a campaign called #cleanseas. The main aim of this campaign is to end Marine litter. The UN also has plans to eradicate plastic by 2025-2030. According to a study, if we keep on using plastic the oceans will contain more plastic than fish. For now 10+ countries have joined this campaign and we are proud to declare that 25+ states in India have already implemented this.
