Worldwatch Institute analysis explores trends in global plastic production and recycling

For more than 50 years, global production of plastic has continued to rise. Some 299 million tons of plastics were produced in 2013, representing a four percent increase over 2012. Recovery and recycling, however, remain insufficient, and millions of tons of plastics end up in landfills and oceans each year. This according to Gaelle Gourmelon, communications and marketing manager at the Worldwatch Institute, in the Institute’s recent Vital Signs online article (www. worldwatch.org).
