To understand how much plastic we produce, let's use the largest animal in all known history of Earth: The blue whale.
Blue whales are huge! They can weigh as much as a commercial plane, like a Boing 757.
Finally, imagine a new monster that is...
'Cause showing you annual production is way too big to use anything cute in this worldand rounding numbers
That would be 29 big monsters free in the sea on a single day (as in 2017).
And because plastic can take over 500 years to degrade, it's all only breaking down into small pieces that are just easier to ingest and breath. All that we have created is still around in our world and it's giving cute ocean creatures a really hard time.
