For anyone still mad on banning plastics in any form...This should put things in perspective.... Shocking report reveals that 95% of plastic polluting the world's oceans comes from just TEN rivers including the Ganges and Niger.

The developed world doesn't litter the oceans much at all. The only industrialized western country on the list of top 20 plastic polluters is the United States at No. 20, accounting for less than 1% of the world's plastic litter in oceans.

Researchers from Helmholtz-Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ) in Leipzig found that the top 10 rivers accounted for 88 to 95 per cent of the total global load.
