Mismanage Plastic Waste The amount of plastic debris that ends up in the oceans from the land is mostly determined by population size living within 50km of a coast and by the amount of plastic waste that is mismanaged—either littered or disposed into uncontained dumps or landfills.
This section is an overview of the steep and rapid rise in the production and use of plastics; also plastic waste management and mis-management, recycling and the prevalence of microplastic debris in the environment.
