Is plastic pollution out of control?

Did we lose control of #plastic #pollution in the pandemic?
While air pollution levels saw a significant drop, plastic waste has exploded: 'The quantity of single-use plastic in food-related product like packaging and utensils may have increased by 250% to 300% in America since the coronavirus outbreak'

Could the projections by World Economic Forum in 2016 that the total weight of plastic in the #ocean could outweigh the total weigh of fish in the ocean by 2050 become reality - maybe even earlier than expected?
