Summary

It’s difficult to imagine life without plastic. But what if the alternative is a life without oceans?

The aggregated waste of modern living is choking entire marine ecosystems. Plastics and their degraded version, microplastics, are one of the major threats to our oceans, and their clean-up poses a giant engineering and logistical challenge. Microplastic particles are infiltrating even the most remote waters, disrupting the marine food chain and leaching toxins into delicate ecosystems.

Our panel of leading environmental thinkers discusses what can be done to counter this compounding and devastating issue.
