This work represents how by 2050, our oceans might contain more plastic than fish. Based on current predictions, our oceans might contain at least 937 million tons of plastic and 895 million tons of fish.
8.3billion tonnes of plastic has been produced since the 50s with the majority ending up in landfill or polluting the world’s continents and oceans.
Plastic use has increased 20-fold in the last 50 years, and it's continuing to rise.
