The plastic pollution crisis is up there with Climate Change. And so it should be. It’s a global issue affecting us all, and if you’ve had your head buried in the sand of late, scientists are now predicting that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Plastic is now present in our soils, it often ends up in the sea and is consumed by and is killing plankton, fish, mammals and seabirds and a depressing thought is that future fossil foragers will be identifying human existence on earth by the layers of rubbish and plastic in the earth’s geological records. Us humans have had such a dramatic impact on the planet in the last few hundred years, we have now entered a new epoch, the Anthropocene. Welcome to the ‘Age of plastic‘.
