Will there be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050? (cartoon #8)

This cartoon is inspired by a report published in 2016 at the World Economic Forum and showing that, in a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain one tonne of plastic for every three tonnes of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish. It is up to us to change this trend!

At the G7, on June 9, 2018, a non-binding agreement was signed by 5 of 7 leaders to reduce plastic waste in oceans. U.S.A. and Japan declined to sign.
