©Jambeck et al. Science Plastic pollution is not only a waste challenge, but a production, consumption and handling issue which must be tackled upstream where plastic is produced and consumed. In contrast to other trash, plastic can float around for decades. In addition to being harmful to terrestrial and aquatic life, plastics can absorb toxins and
