Plan Revealed To Curb Marine Plastics

  |   Blog, News   |   No comment

Over half of the materials leaking into the world’s oceans comes from five rapidly-developing countries, namely China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand. But according to the environmental advocacy group Ocean Conservancy, its four-point plan could cut 65% of the plastic pollution in this region by 2025, translating into a 45% reduction in plastics flowing into the oceans globally.
The program suggested by the Ocean Conservancy would cost roughly US$ 5 billion per year ‘if executed today’. It stresses that there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution, with the mix of required solutions including collaboration with industry to introduce new materials, recovery and recycling approaches that would help uncontrolled plastic waste to ‘peak globally’ by 2030.
