  1.  There are more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean
  2.  Plastic pollution weighs more than every human combined
  3.  Plastics infect the food chain – all the way to our plates
  4.  Plastic collects in gyres and turns our oceans into plastic soups
  5.  Only 5% of plastic is recycled
