Cause Impact

£1.3 removes 1kg of certified ocean-bound plastic

About the Cause

Every year over 75 million tonnes of plastic packaging flows into our ocean. Not only does this kill marine life mistaking this plastic for food (eg whales, fish, and sea turtles), but the microplastics released have dire consequences for all living things included in that ecosystem (including humans).

Virtue works with a number of offsetting partners across the world to clean up certified ocean-bound plastic. Depending on the project supported, offsetting activities can include; beach cleaning efforts, river plastic capture, and other offsetting measures ealier in the supply chain.

Primary Partner(s): Plastics or Change, Seven Clean Seas
