The effect of plastic on the ocean environment

Millions of tons of plastic waste enter our oceans every year, posing a huge threat to Marine life and causing irreversible damage.

1. Why is plastic pollution a problem? How much plastic do humans actually produce?

So far, humans have produced about 8.3 billion tons of plastic, and it's expected to reach 12 billion tons by 2050. Seventy-nine percent of this plastic waste ends up in landfills or the environment.

2. How much plastic waste ends up in the sea?

About 8-9 million tons of plastic enter the ocean each year through different routes.

3. How long does it take for ocean plastic waste to degrade?

All five gyres have higher concentrations of plastic than the rest of the ocean. They are made up of tiny pieces of plastic that appear to be suspended just below the surface of seawater, a phenomenon known as "plastic soup." The natural degradation of plastic can take hundreds of years.

4. Why is plastic so bad for Marine life? What is the threat to humanity?

For seabirds and larger sea creatures such as turtles, dolphins and seals, the danger comes from becoming entangled in plastic bags and other debris, or mistaking plastic for food. Plastic waste slowly degrades and breaks down into tiny pieces. A third of fish found to have plastic in them include cod, haddock, mackerel and shellfish. These potential threats could lead to human ingestion of harmful plastic components. The effects of eating fish containing plastic on humans are still largely unknown.
