We have a love hate relationship with plastic. It is extremely useful for everyday life but with an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans today, this is a huge issue which cannot be ignored. A recent report from the World Wildlife Fund highlighted that plastic waste is everywhere. It’s in our water systems, littered around our cities and it’s found in hundreds of different species as they mistakenly ingest plastic waste. It is clear that this issue won’t be solved unless there is collective action at all levels. One of the key recommendations of the report from the World Wildlife Fund was that global plastic recovery also known as recycling, needs to double!
