The Mediterranean Sea: Plastic Pollution

From Greek Reporter - Greenpeace: Mediterranean in Grave Danger From Plastic Pollution

"Greece produces between 180,000-300,000 tonnes of plastic packaging a year, while the total annual demand for plastic is estimated to be around 500,000 tonnes. Only a very small percentage of this amount is recycled, while the Institute for Retail Consumer Goods Research (IELKA) estimates that Greeks use 363 plastic bags per person each year".
