Plastic has created a major problem in our oceans, on our seashores, and on our lands. Because it will never naturally biodegrade, nearly every piece of plastic produced is still in the environment in some form.
This issue causes upwards of8 million tonsof plastic to enter the ocean every year, 80% of which comes from land based sources. This plastic that starts out as litter in the streets or in our parks is being swept into drains and rivers that lead to the ocean.
Which is why WHOI has partnered with Cape Clasp. Made from plastic removed from the oceans as the raw material, these bracelets are worn as a daily reminder to reduce your plastic use, and to protect our oceans.
