“Plastic waste is one of the biggest issues facing the planet today, with its impacts stretching far and wide. It can be found polluting everything from the tallest mountains to the deepest ocean trenches and can affect human health, destroy ecosystems, and harm wildlife – especially marine species. While the lifespan of plastic products averages around 10 years, plastics can take up to 500 years to decompose, depending on their composition and disposal. Between 1970 to 2019, an estimated 30 million metric tonnes of plastic had accumulated in the ocean, while more than 100 million tonnes had accumulated in rivers and lakes. Such large amounts of plastic waste pollution in waterways can have devastating impacts on marine life and ecosystems.” Source: statista.com (march 15, 2023)
