Organizations, governments pledge to reduce plastic waste

But the impact of one of the world's most popular sports (soccer that is) can have by raising awareness and spurring a conversation around ocean plastic pollution in the midst of the World Cup hysteria cannot be overstated. Reports say, around the world 1 million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute, later polluting our environment.

The guest speaker is Laura Griffith-Cochrane, marine biologist and curator of the Ucluelet Aquarium. But inside there's debris from all over the world - debris that traps or is eaten by marine animals, filling up their bodies to the point of being fatal and tainting our food supply. Whether it´s oil from some industrial source, fertilizers washed away from gardens or any form of plastic, they have all become present and continue to grow in our contemporary oceans.

The number of countries identified by the Ocean Conservancy that produce the most plastic pollution, due to ballooning populations and mismanaged waste disposal. But the mention of plastics waste by heads of government of some of the world's largest economies indicated the rising concern. The shifted focus includes the company-wide limiting of single-use plastic, the intercepting of plastic waste, and the reinvention of existing materials and plastic products. The river basin is home to nearly 500 million people (more than one third of China's population). Until recently, China imported recyclable materials including plastic from developed countries, such as Canada, the US and European countries, but these imports have since been banned.

It is clear that this is one environmental issue for which every one of us can effect needed change by taking the threat seriously and amending our single-use plastic lifestyles for the good of all. Also, we should look for products that are made out of biodegradable alternatives to plastic - or use glass. They are the lungs of the planet and provide us with the oxygen we breathe.

By 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than there are fish.

Reduce your plastic consumption. Pollution is a menace that can be resolved only by combined and concerted efforts of governments, civil society, corporates, and NGOs. The concept of a "World Oceans Day" was first proposed in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro as a way to celebrate world's shared ocean and to raise awareness about the crucial role the ocean plays in our lives. "We hope that our study will make a contribution to a positive development so that the plastic problem in our oceans can be curbed in the long run".

Competitor Nike has also designed National Basketball Association (NBA) jerseys using a similar technology that incorporates polyester derived from recycled plastic water bottles.
