Plastic is the most abundant type of litter in the sea

About 229,000 tons of plastic every year reach the Mediterranean Sea, equal to the weight of 1,500 blue whales

In Montenegro, about 8.7 kg of plastic per capita reach the Adriatic Sea every year (about 5,500 tons), equal to the weight of 37 blue whales

How to reduce plastic litter

  • Choose reusable shopping bags (cotton bags) instead of plastic ones
  • Say no to single-use plastic (cups, straws, cutlery, bottles)
  • Avoid cosmetics products with micro-plastic
  • Use less detergents
  • Use natural clothes instead of synthetics
  • Recycle
