Water bottles, Tupperware containers and even children's toys are made of the same thing: plastic. Pretty soon, you can add the ocean to that list, according to a new report.
In fact, the ocean is expected to contain more plastic than fish by 2050, according to a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
The report, which urges more recycling and reduced waste, goes on to note that the production of plastic materials has increased twentyfold since 1964. Also, plastics now make up around 15 percent of all parts in cars and roughly 50 percent of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
