Actively reducing plastic pollution

Colt Ocean Bottles

Ocean Bottle is a reusable bottle company who are actively reducing plastic pollution. Every time an Ocean Bottle is purchased, 11.4kg of plastic is collected globally, in coastal areas where plastic pollution is worst.

Sadly, it's estimated that eight million new pieces of plastic are dumped into the ocean each day.

Plastic pollution has devastating effects - it can alter habitats and natural processes, and it kills more than one million marine animals every year. This number is likely to be much higher as it only includes deaths that have been witnessed.
