The Global Plastic Pollution Pandemic

Since its popularization in the 1950s, plastic use has skyrocketed due to its low cost and versatility, and it has become widely used in many sectors from packaging to the automotive industry. However, due to plastic’s longevity and resistance to decomposition, its widespread use has led to an epidemic of mismanaged waste. This plastic waste is entering the ocean at a rate of around 11 million metric tons a year, where it harms marine life, damages habitats, affects food safety and quality, and threatens human health.
