The plastic waste crisis is in the news a lot these days. It is estimated that there are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans! Recent papers published in Science and Nature highlight the shocking fact that about 8 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean every year and has created the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a floating plastic waste mess larger than the state of Texas! This demonstrates just how serious the plastic waste issue is and highlights the need for collective action to helps solve this global plastic crisis. The question is, how can we all do something to help solve this problem? The World Wildlife Fund indicated recently that global recycling levels need to double to help solve this problem.
