Some researchers suggest that by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans. Plastic pollution can afflict land, waterways and oceans.
It is estimated that 1.1 to 8.8 million metric tons of plastic waste enters the ocean from costal communities each year
As of 2018, about 380 million tons of plastic is produced worldwide each year
In the UK alone, more than 5 million tonnes of plastic are consumed each year, of which only an estimated one-quarter is recycled.
