Plastic waste

US researchers have calculated that more than eight billion tons of plastic have been produced since the 1950s. About five billion tons of it is waste today. This plastic waste is to be found in landfills, in the open, and in the oceans. A new European marine conservation project wants to change this situation. In our dossier we present the Clean Oceans Initiative, which was co-founded by KfW, as well as other innovative approaches for avoiding or recycling plastic waste.
