National Week Of The Oceans starts March 29. We are celebrating with fantastic Ocean Inspired Eye Makeup. Oceans are important to every single organism in our planet. In fact we would not be alive if it wasn’t for oceans. The air we breath, the water we drink, the food we eat from fish to peanut butter. Your medicine cabinet most likely includes products from the oceans. Medicines that help fight cancer, arthritis, Alzheimers, heart disease, viruses and more. Add in Shampoos and cosmetics.
With over half the world living by the coast, over $500 Billion is contributed to the worlds economy. In the US one in 6 jobs in comes from the ocean contributing more that $128 billion to our economy.
- Plastic waste in oceans is causing $13 billion of damage each year, according to a UNEP report (United Nations Environment Report)
- Worldwide plastic production is projected to reach 33 billion tons by 2050, and plastic makes up 80% of litter on oceans and shorelines.
- Ten to 20 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year, from litter, runoff from poorly managed landfills, and other sources
