It is estimated that at least 8 million tons of plastic enter the ocean every year, equivalent to a whole truck of plastic waste dumped into the sea every minute. , the “deepest” mariana trench on earth, has also found man-made waste.
Marine waste is killing millions of seabirds every year, as well as about 100,000 Marine mammals and countless fish species. If unchecked, the amount of plastic in the oceans could exceed the total weight of fish by 2050.
In the ocean depths of more than 2,000 meters, humans leave the most traces, but all kinds of garbage.
Greenbow would like to solemnly tell you that once the garbage sinks into the deep sea, it is very difficult to pick up, facing the ocean garbage almost helpless.
Fortunately, more and more volunteers are joining the team to protect the sea.
More than 300 kilograms of rubbish were picked up in less than an hour by more than 20 people on a muddy beach where Shanghai’s huangpu river flows into the mouth of the Yangtze river.
From 2007 to 2018, renduhaiyang organized 217 beach cleaning activities in Shanghai, recruiting tens of thousands of volunteers to clean up 27 tons of shoreline garbage.
At present, the “protect the coastline” project has set up 55 monitoring points in 35 cities across the country. Through the analysis of more than 80,000 pieces of beach garbage, it is found that the largest amount of beach garbage is plastic and foam plastic.
From the mouth of the yalu river to the beilun estuary, China’s more than 18,000 kilometers of mainland coastline, every inch of the beach needs our joint protection! In front of the sea, each of us is an “islander” of the earth.
Have you ever heard of a plastic bag that disappears in hot water? This bag is very tough, strong load-bearing capacity but in room temperature water quickly softened, disappeared in hot water. Even if thrown into the ocean, it will not produce harmful substances to any animals in the ocean. — water-soluble plastic film is made of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA, PVOH or PVAL), a high-water-soluble polymer material. Environmental protection, safety, non-toxic, harmless, and natural environment has a good affinity.
Greenbon sincerely hopes that everyone will pay attention to the environmental problems caused by plastic bags, reduce the use of disposable tableware and all kinds of plastic products, and call on more people to join the environmental protection action to protect the environment.
