Infographic: The ugly journey of our trash

The Ugly Journey of our Trash is a great infographic showing the devasting effects our litter and plastic waste has on our planet and particularly our oceans.

Key facts include:

  • Global annual plastic production has boomed from 1.7 million tonnes in 1950 to almost 300 million
  • 250 million metric tonnes of plastic could make its way into the ocean by 2025
  • 95% of northern fulmars washed up dead in the North Sea had ingested plastic debris


The infographic was produced by the Project AWARE Foundation, a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean planet.
