'We have a responsibility, every one of us' David Attenborough

Around 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are entering the ocean every year, killing over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals. By 2050 there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight.

But how can YOU make a difference?

This accessible guide will help you make the small changes that make a big difference, including:

* Using a wash bag to catch plastic microfibers
* Replacing your regular shampoo with bar shampoo
* How to throw a plastic-free birthday party

Plastic is not going away without a fight. This is a call to arms - to join forces across the world and end our dependence on plastic.
