New Study Reveals US Generates Most Plastic Pollution Worldwide


Science Advances revealed that the US produces more plastic waste than any other nation. It also ranks as high as third among countries causing coastal plastic pollution when factoring in scrap plastic exports plus illegal dumping and littering.

This new research contradicts previous assumptions that the US manages and disposes of its plastic waste properly. It also takes the spotlight off Asian countries, which often get the majority of the blame for marine litter.A 2010 study ranked the US 20th among countries contributing to ocean plastic pollution; however, it didn’t account for plastic scrap exports.
