A simple walk on any beach, anywhere, and the plastic waste spectacle is present.
All over the world the statistics are ever growing; indeed, staggeringly. Tons of plastic debris is discarded every year, everywhere, polluting lands, rivers, coasts, beaches, and oceans. Plastic debris can vary in size from large containers, fishing nets to microscopic plastic pellets or even particles.
Environmentalists have long denounced plastic as a long-lasting pollutant that does not fully break down, in other terms, not biodegradable.
The UN Environment states that an estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste find their way into the planet’s oceans every year.
