The dumping trend is set
to double these numbers

Tragically, far too much is just dumped into the ocean.

Our valuable oceans.

The ocean is life – and it belongs to everyone. It gives us oxygen, food, and millions of jobs. It brings joy and shapes our climate and weather. There are countless reasons to protect our oceans:

• The ocean produces over half of the world’s oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere.

• Covering 70 percent of the Earth’s surface, the ocean transports heat from the equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns.

• Seventy-six percent of all U.S. trade involves some form of marine transportation.

• The U.S. ocean economy produces $282 billion in goods and services and ocean-dependent businesses employ almost three million people.

• Many medicinal products come from the ocean, including ingredients that help fight cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and heart disease.
