    Raising awareness about plastic pollution to inspire behavioral change

Plastic Oceans International is a nonprofit organization raising awareness about plastic pollution to inspire behavioral change. Our origins date back several years, as part of the team that helped distribute the award-winning film A Plastic Ocean, but our current status has been as a fully independent nonprofit organization since 2016. More than 300 million tons of plastic are produced annually, yet more than 90% of all plastic is not recycled. At least eight million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean each year—equal to a garbage truck per minute. Studies find plastic pollutes the air, water and entire food chain, threatening human health, wildlife and the planet. Through solutions-focused films and digital content, Plastic Oceans promotes a global movement to rethink plastic.
