The Plastic Soup Foundation is an organization which fights the biggest environmental crisis of our time: plastic pollution. Every minute, the equivalent of – at least – one full garbage truck of plastic trash is dumped in the ocean. But it doesn’t just end up in our water: it also ends up in the air and our food, and therefore, in our bodies.
We can no longer ignore the suffocating effects that plastic has on life. We’re constantly touching, eating out of, wearing, and breathing plastic, and we can’t help but wonder what it does to us. What we know so far is alarming, and every day we’re finding out more on how plastic particles and plastic additives adversely affect human health and development. Until industry can prove that plastic is safe, we are calling for a drastic reconsideration of our reliance on it.
