marine debris problem

It is said that the amount of marine debris will exceed the weight of fish by 2050, and marine pollution is a serious problem. Eight million tons of plastic waste enters the ocean every year, seriously impacting marine life. It is said that 800% of marine debris is caused by "city trash," and microplastics, tiny pieces of plastic, can also be taken into marine life and affect humans through the food chain.

Activity purpose

In order to reduce marine debris, it is essential to take proactive action not only in the ocean but also in the city. In order to raise awareness of the deep connection between the ocean and the city, we will hold a garbage collection event for the ocean in a large city without an ocean, thereby protecting the ocean for the next generation and contributing to ocean protection and the global environment. We will take the following actions and send the message.
Held for the first time last year, the event attracted participants from a wide range of ages, from 7 to 77 years old, with a particularly large number of university students participating. This activity received a great response and will be held again this year.
