A Million Plastic Bottles Per Minute
Ocean plastics is an increasingly significant problem for our planet and Reef Knots is going to be focusing heavily on the topic during 2018. With an estimated 1 million plastic bottles purchased every minute around the globe, the amount ending up in our oceans is increasing daily. This can have a devastating impact on the marine life that lives there with micro plastics now working their way into the food chain.
Between 5-13 million tonnes of plastic finds its way into the world oceans each year. We will be urging our customers to change their habits regarding single-use plastisc, as well as highlighting the work being done to combat this issue.
We'll soon be releasing a special edition tie in collaboration with our charity partner, the Blue Marine Foundation. 25% off the sales will be donated directly to BLUE, and we hope it will help to spark a conversation surrounding the health of our oceans.
