It is estimated that over 3 million pieces of litter are dumped into Lake Ontario annually. The amount of plastic tossed in each year is equivalent to 28 Olympic sized swimming pools filled with water bottles. These remnants of our single-use, expendable society are suffocating our lake, a lake that provides drinking water for 6.3 million people. And what’s scarier, studies have shown that our waste water treatment plants lack the capabilities to remove all of the microscopic bits of plastic floating in it - meaning that, yes, that glass of water you are drinking may contain tiny plastic particles.
We're making a documentary to raise awareness and change this. We have a wonderful team working on this project, but we certainly need your help to make it happen. Please support our crowdfunding campaign, spread the word, and come out to a cleanup!
