Ever since their inception in the 1800’s, plastic usage been rising exponentially. The multitude of applications coupled with the low cost of production has seen us burn through about 500 billion single-use plastic bags a year and it is now believed that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean. Of that mass, 269,000 tons float on the surface, while some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea.
