What You Need to Know
Plastic pollution is a major environmental issue that has been affecting our planet for several decades now. The production of plastic began in the 1940s and since then, an estimated 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic has been produced, out of which 6.3 billion metric tons have become waste.
Facts About Plastics in Oceans:
- By 2050, it is estimated that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight.
- Plastic debris has been found in every ocean on our planet.
- Plastic pollution kills more than one million seabirds and over 100,000 marine animals every year.
- Plastic bags can take up to 1,000 years to degrade in landfills.
One of the most concerning issues related to plastic pollution is its impact on our oceans. It is estimated that up to 12.7 million metric tons of plastic waste enter the oceans every year. This waste not only harms marine life but also poses a threat to human health, as microplastics have been found in seafood and drinking water.
