3.14 billion tons of garbage a year! September 26, 2018, 10:43 am

The annual amount of garbage on the Earth will increase by 70% by 2050 and can reach 3.14 billion tons if the states do not pool their efforts and take steps aimed at recycling waste and reducing the consumption of plastic.
The most serious problem specialists see in the recycling of plastic, which without proper and timely processing has a serious effect on ecosystems, since plastic products do not decompose in hundreds or even thousands of years. The authors of the report in this connection stressed that only in 2016 the countries of the world recycled 242 million tons of plastic garbage, which is 12% of all solid waste.
Such a forecast is contained in the World Bank report on combating global environmental pollution.
