CORONA AND PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS PLEDGE TO PROTECT 100 ISLANDS FROM MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION BY 2020

CORONA AND PARLEY FOR THE OCEANS PLEDGE TO PROTECT 100 ISLANDS FROM MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION BY 2020

Around 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the oceans each year. If current marine pollution trends continue, the oceans will contain more plastic than fish by the year 2050.

These are just two reasons why, on International Recycling Day, Corona announced a partnership to help end marine plastic pollution, one of the biggest threats to the health and survival of the planet’s most important ecosystem – the world’s oceans.
