How ocean pollution affects humans [Infographic]

The oceans are mankind’s lifeline, which contribute to over 70% of the oxygen we breathe and over 96% of our water supply. The oceans are so vast that they cover 72% of the world’s surface. 

With our oceans being at the brink of disaster, we have to do something to stop our vital system from destruction. In 2007, over 2.12 billion tons of plastic had been dumped into our oceans. In 2014, 5000 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico was almost devoid of any life, all because of pollution. Our modern industrial lifestyles are affecting our oceans in the worst ways possible and this could lead to the most detrimental of consequences.
