A report released by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the World Economic Forum estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.
The impacts of this are significant. Our marine life is affected by this pollution, our coral is calcifying, our oceans are becoming more acidic and water toxicity levels are rising. The long-term implications of this are not yet known.
But, a sweeping change is occurring around the world in the way we use plastic packaging.
Jurisdictions and brands throughout the globe have committed to moving away from single-use plastics. Action has been identified to move to reusable, recyclable or compostable products.
