These microplastics cannot be recycled and the overwhelming majority will remain in our oceans, which are inevitably consumed by marine mammals, fish and seabirds. It is estimated that 30% of turtles and 71% of seabirds have plastic in their stomachs.

We are facing a big problem where the solution is not simple. But together we can be the start of it.

Instead of using plastic knives and forks while eating on the go, use a reusable set of bamboo cutlery that will be a cheaper option as well as it being better for our environment. However if you do need to use disposable cutlery, whether its for a party or work function, be sure to look out for ones from out of 100% biodegradable material. Just small changes like this will help lead to a greener and healthier planet.
