To ensure that every person on the planet realized the scale of the problems at the same time was organized the online broadcast, called the “longest in history”: it will be 450 years.
That is how much it takes one plastic bottle to fully decompose. Meanwhile, every year the ocean gets about 8 million tons of plastic waste, and for the past decade, there have accumulated at least 150 million tonnes.
Each country is part of “the plastic crisis”, so humankind needs a single global solution to all governments willing to take measures to stop leakage of plastic into the environment. Created to the UN a petition must draw the attention of reputable international organizations on the most important environmental problem of our time.

Up to this point the petition was signed by almost 495 thousand people. Find out how dangerous plastic is for absolutely all living beings.
