Transcript of Plastic

Free dumping ground for everybody? Plastics in the oceans In general Source of plastic waste Solutions every year 240 million t will produced
ca. 48 million elephants
ca. 1200000 blue whales

ca. 6,4 million t of plastic waste end up in the ocean
ca. 32000 blue whales

on every square kilometer of the water surface 18.000 plastic particle drift -there, certainly this makes just 15 % of the plastic waste in the ocean

another 70% sink on the seafloor, the remaining 15% are on the coast

80% of this plastic waste swim across rivers in the sea 5 Gyres Naturschutzbund Reduction Action Legislation Innovation Recovery "Alte Handys für die Havel" European week for waste reduction "Meere ohne Plastik" and "Fishing for Litter" borrow instead of buying
no unnecessary plastic bags
reusable instead of disposable
refill packs
fix old things 1. reduce
2. reuse
3. recycle Vision:
follow the plastic reduction until no plastic is left Mission:
inform about the danger and develop strategies to remove the trash aware shopping
avoid plastic enlighten the people
change habits make new rules and observe them
e.g. MARPOL recycling aware recovery by e.g. collecting campaigns for each phone NABU gets up to 3€ from E-Plus
support project "untere Havel"
less plastic waste by mobile phones
about 1.100 animals and plant species can be saved 16th to 24th November
initiatives how to avoid plastic waste anywhere adress to the public
organised collecting campaign
waste will be analysed and published

international project for the North Sea and Baltic Sea
fishermen collect waste and dispose it Sources big impact on nature, animals and our health
can clogging our waterways
ships can get damages on her propeller or it comes to collision
baneful effect for animals (seals, whales, dolphins, fishes,..)
choke, starve out or get injuries in their stomach Problems http://www.oceancare.org/de/thementiere/plastik/plastikmuell.php
Hanna Schmalhaus (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe)
Julian Heiermann (NABU) most of the trash came with the river in the sea
in poor countries old plastic or other trash is placed on
garbage dumps at riversides or they put it directly on coats
fishers and the tourists left their trash in the oceans
furthermore cargo ships lose their shipload
for example 1990 a business concern lost 60.000 shoes
or 29.000 stuffed animals become lost on the way from Hong Kong to
the trash is concentrated far away from coasts at five big gyre.
because of current in the ocean the gyres were build in the middles of the ocean
the biggest one is the north pacific gyre (Pacific garbage patch, großer Plastikmüllfleck)
the patch had a plain which exceed the plain of Germany and it's still growing
people talk about a carpet made of plastic but more trappyer
the plastic is already decomposed in very small pieces so we can't see them while they swim with 11 centimeters per second
