What is the problem?

Over 300 million tons of plastic are produced every year for use in a wide variety of applications, and every year 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean. Today, single-use plastics account for 40 percent of the plastic produced every year. Many of these products, such as plastic bags and food wrappers, have a lifespan of mere minutes to hours, yet they may persist in the environment for hundreds of years.
