There are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic trash in the world’s oceans, and each year, 8 million tons of plastic are added to the count. That’s equivalent to one municipal garbage truck pulling up to the beach and dumping its contents every minute.
Plastic has infiltrated the ocean’s ecosystem, from plankton to whales.
Though the oceans seem vast enough to stomach a lot of plastic, the level of waste is starting to reach a crisis point: According to a new report by the Ocean Conservancy, in partnership with the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment, by 2025, the ocean could contain one ton of plastic for every three tons of fish.
There are several Sustainable Packaging Options available today.
Green Cell Foam is a unique natural packaging material. Available since 2002, Green Cell Foam matches the performance of petroleum based foams while providing customers with an eco-conscious, biodegradable alternative made from cornstarch.
