Every year, 14 million tons of plastics enter our ocean, which is equivalent to the weight of over 140,000 blue whales. By 2050, the weight of plastics in the ocean is projected to surpass that of fish, and a major contributor is ocean-bound plastic, which is defined as an abandoned plastic waste located within 50km from shores where waste management is inexistent or inefficient. These impacts affect at least 700 marine species and result in the deaths of 100 million marine animals annually.
