Importance of Cleanups

  • An Estimated one tonne of waste is produced per person every year in Ontario.

  • Approximately 10,000 tonnes of plastic ends up in Ontario’s lakes and rivers yearly.

  • Ontario’s solid waste emitted 3.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide which furthers global warming.

  • More microplastics are being found in many strips in the Great Lakes than in oceans

    • Microplastics are then transferred from aquatic animals to humans.
