Plastic Pollution: the unfriendly army we're raising

According to statistics, plastic production has risen from 1 billion tonnes in the early 1980s to a landmark of 7 billion tonnes in the year 2015 and over 8 billion tonnes before 2017 which surpassed the world population of 7.51 billion in 2017 (UN.org).
