By 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans. It’s an environmental crisis in the making for nearly 70 years. Plastic pollution is now considered one of the largest environmental threats facing humans and animals globally. Because it doesn’t degrade and instead breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces, much of that plastic will remain here on earth. The problem is clear—too much plastic.
