    "We've produced nearly as much plastic in the first decade of this millennium as we did in the entire twentieth century."

    -- Susan Freinkel, "Plastic: A Toxic Love Story," p. 10

     

    How much is that? 280 million metric tons in 2011, according to Plastics Europe, the European industry group. 

    617.29 billion a year

    88 pounds a year for every one of the 7 billion people on the planet.

    Half of that will be thrown away after a single use.
