Plastic Pollution

Sea Life Trust Logo

Devoted to protecting marine creatures

The SEA LIFE Trust is a registered marine conservation charity working globally to find solutions for the issues of plastic pollution and microplastics. We want to eliminate plastic pollution and find a way to clear our oceans of microplastics and dangerous plastic debris.

Scientists estimate that up to 26 million tons of plastic waste end up in the ocean each year, killing millions of marine creatures. Around 80% of this plastic comes from the land as litter is carried out to sea by rivers and blown by the wind from landfill into the ocean. The other 20% comes from ships at sea.
