Globally, nearly 1 million tons of plastic are produced every day. That’s 41,667 tons per hour that will eventually end up in the environment or landfills.

This is a BIG iWonder question – but an important one. I wonder if we can make it a bit more specific and measurable? Can you think of a way to limit the area (something a wee bit smaller than the whole earth 🙂 )?
