Ninety percent of consumer goods are shipped by sea, severely damaging the environment.

Tank containers with caustic chemicals pollute and destroy the world's waters. They also contribute to dwindling stocks of whales and other ocean mammals; some 45% of endangered ocean species are dying out due to disturbed ecosystems. It is true that a ship can transport more containers than a train. However, overloaded ships and towering waves send roughly 10,000 containers a year tumbling overboard into the depths of the ocean.
