With policies like China's National Sword, we are at a turning point in the crisis of plastic pollution: take action to redesign products and reduce our consumption, or allow the problem to worsen with fewer opportunities to recycle.
Research on tap water found 94% of samples from the US were contaminated with plastic microfibers. Another study found plastic or anthropogenic particles in 67% of fish sampled across the globe. Plastic pollution doesn't just affect remote areas in the middle of the ocean or developing countries.
An estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste enters the world’s ocean every day.
