Cheap, lightweight, robust, and pliable, plastic is a popular material. Every year, over 300 million tonnes of plastic are produced, with half of it going into single-use goods like shopping bags, cups, and straws.Every year, over 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans. The most common type of marine litter is floating plastic waste. From surface waters to deep-sea strata, waste plastic comprises nearly 80 percent of all marine trash.
