An estimated amount of 200 million tons of plastic is produced every year. Plastic needs 500 to 3,000 years to decompose. What should we do with all this plastic that we produce, use and waste every year?
The problem is big: 7,250,000,000 Pounds – that is the estimated amount of plastic in our oceans. Boyan Slat is a student of the university in Delft (NL) and he came up with a solution for this problem.
