About 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the oceans every year, according to university researchers. And that number is only expected to rise as the population swells and consumption increases: Estimates put ocean trash at around 17.5 million metric tons by 2025. That's a lot of plastic in our waters.

The grim news has inspired massive efforts to change the course of plastic pollution before we reach the point of no return. The latest comes from Soma and Parley, two companies that teamed up to create a reusable glass water bottle that will serve as a symbol of change and ocean conservation.
