Over the past 50 years, plastic consumption has increased twenty-fold – from 15 million tonnes in 1964 to currently around 300 million. It has been estimated that this figure will double by 2025.
Every year, approx. 10 million tonnes of plastic waste are making their way into the oceans, the equivalent of one truckload of garbage being tipped into the sea every minute. Plastic waste is almost like an eighth continent, and by 2050, it is estimated that there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. It will take centuries for this waste to decompose; 450 to 700 years alone for PET bottles.
