These are 2018’s stats of the year

The winning statistic of 2018 is that 90.5% of all the plastic that’s ever been produced has never been recycled.

Mass production of plastic got underway around 60 years ago and since then around 6.3 billion metric tonnes of plastic waste has been generated.

Of this, 12% of it is incinerated, with the rest ending up in landfill sites, as litter, or polluting the oceans.
