Land-based sources (such as agricultural run-off, discharge of nutrients and pesticides and untreated sewage including plastics) account for approximately 80% of marine pollution, globally.
There are five massive patches of plastic in the oceans around the world. These huge concentrations of plastic debriscover large swaths of the ocean; the one between California and Hawaii is the size of the state of Texas.
Plastic is found in the ocean as far as 11km deep, meaning synthetic fibers have contaminated even the most remote places on Earth.
By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish.
We think you get the point here. We don't want to live in a world where our marine life is depleated and our corals destroyed. And it is because of these ever changing statistics that we aim to complete this project and avoid catastrophy, or at least help the best way possible.
Scubooking is not looking to change things overnight, but is definitely designed to start investing in preserving our oceans by contributing 50% of it's profits into saving our oceans.
