The magnitude of the plastic trash issue captured in one image

May 15 2012 | Chapters, Plastics,

Plastic trash has become a massive problem in our oceans.

We talk about recycling but the simple truth is that less than 10% of our plastics are recycled.

The red line shows how much plastic is created. The green line shows how much is recovered (recycled). The massive and growing yellow area is what ends up as trash... this means it ends up in landfills and our oceans.
