A blue economy is critical because our one-world ocean is at risk of:
A blue economy can help reverse the devastating effects these practices have had on the ocean.
Instead of the take-make-waste linear model that’s been run for many years, manufacturers of a circular economy focus on creating products with continual use in mind.
Without blue and circular economy initiatives, we can expect only a 7% reduction in the annual flow of plastic into the ocean.
With blue and circular economy initiatives, we can reduce plastic flow to the ocean 80% by 2040 and save governments around the world $70 billion.
