The WWF have recently declared a state of emergency as global vertebrate populations have declined by a catastrophic 60%.

It is thought that there is more microplastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way, microplastic has now even been found in the furthest reaches of the Arctic. These findings are pretty hard hitting, but it's still hard to see the direct effects of plastics when living in a city.
