How we get here
The world is throwing the equivalent of a rubbish truck of waste into the oceans every minute – and the rate of pollution is only likely to increase.
By 2030, plastic is expected to be leaking into the ocean at a rate of two trucks per minute, and by 2050 that could hit four per minute.
Currently, the amount of plastic in the oceans is estimated at about 150 million tonnes – about a fifth of the weight of the fish.
