Last years’ Blue Planet II hammered home the real threat of plastic pollution to our planet and gave us all the opportunity to see, first hand, the impact of human activity on marine life.
So how bad is it? Well, at current rates it’s predicted that the ocean will contain more plastic than fish by 2050. A pretty bleak prospect.
However, this past year has seen a powerful rallying call from the public, urging peers, brands and the government to do more to protect the environment. As well as the Government’s ban on micro-beads and the plastic bag levy, brands are also beginning to overhaul their packaging too, with some even pledging to go completely plastic-free.
