The world’s oceans are in dire need of a solution to rid them of dangerous plastics that could soon occupy more of the water than the fish that call them home. 8 million metric tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean each year and the United Nations Environment Programme estimates there could be as many as 51 trillion microplastic particles in the oceans already. All of this plastic is not only hazardous for wildlife but for the millions of people who live near the oceans or consume the fish that inhabit the waters. With these problems continuing to mount, leaders including country presidents, business CEOs and representatives from the UN gathered in Playa del Carmen, Mexico at the World Ocean Summit to collaborate on how to address these issues head-on.

After days of discussion, ideation and planning, these leaders are prepared to put their next foot forward in the fight to make our oceans cleaner for future generations. The film, includes a strong message and call to action from Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, President, Iceland, Sylvia Earle, President and Chairman, Mission Blue, Emily Woglom, Executive Vice President, The Ocean Conservancy, Lisa Emilia Svensson, Director For Ocean, United Nations Environment and Ben Jordan, Senior Director, environmental policy, The Coca-Cola Company.

The film can be downloaded directly from this page or found via YouTube for embed.
