More plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050
According to the World Economic Forum, we could easily have an ocean filled with more plastic than fish (in weight).
So you don't have to read the whole WEF article - here's a quick summary on how to fix the issue:
1 - INNOVATE: 95% of plastic is only used 1x - that's $80-120 billion annually of plastic that could be converted into recycled, born again plastic, thus we could have a new plastics economy.
2- STOP: Stop making new plastic. Cost + cost associated with greenhouse gas emissions = $40 billion annually, exceeding the profit from plastic industry.
Now don't let the plastic bag hit yah on your way out.
