5 Shocking Facts about Plastics in our Ocean!

There are 8 billion tons of plastic on earth.


And once it’s made, it never goes away.

At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year.


That's similar to emptying a garbage truck of plastic into an ocean every minute.

 

More than 50 percent of sea turtles have consumed plastic.


One million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die each year from plastic.

One million plastic bottles are bought every minute around the world — and that number will top half a trillion by 2021.


Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled.

The average U.S. citizen consumes 167 plastic water bottles each year


but recycles just 25 percent of them.

 

Watch how Kove is helping save the oceans one swimsuit at a time.

By purchasing a Kove swimuit, you are removing 12+ used plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in the ocean.
