Oceans Plastic Project
This interdisciplinary project focuses on the manufacturing of plastic, a global industry that exceeds more than 335 million tons in 2016. The slow degradation from macro plastics to micro plastic waste leads to terrestrial and atmospheric waste, yet at least ten percent if not more ends up in the world’s ocean. Because of the high concentration of industry in Asia, Latin America, and Africa, much of it ends up in the Global South.
