You’re invited to a discussion        

on the increasing problem        

of Ocean Plastics.         

Can we use our expertise to        

map out solutions for the future?


Along with millions of tons of microplastics, up to 35 million plastic bottles are sold in the UK each day. Around half are recycled, with the balance ending up in landfill or in our oceans. The number of plastic bottles washed up on UK beaches increased by 43% in 2015, and predictions suggest that we’ll have more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. It’s also hard to comprehend that unless some has been burned, every bit of plastic ever made will still be in existence, with the marine environment housing millions of tons.

Does it have to be this way? Perhaps not, it’s time for solutions! On June 29th we will be addressing this issue at a one day conference in Cambridge. We will ask if ocean plastics is the next big environmental challenge and need your help, expertise and vision to map out the solutions.
