Eight million tons of plastic dumped into oceans each year, killing marine life and entering the human food chain.
Discarded plastic is one of the biggest environmental threats facing the planet, the UN said in a report on Tuesday to mark World Environment Day.
The UN report, Single-Use Plastics: A Roadmap for Sustainability, said rules limiting the use of plastic bags have helped in places such as Morocco, Rwanda and parts of China - sometimes significantly.
"Our world is swamped by harmful plastic waste," UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a speech. "Micro-plastics in the seas now outnumber stars in our galaxy. "If present trends continue, by 2050 our oceans will have more plastic than fish." Globally, eight million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean every year, killing marine life and entering the human food chain, according to the UN Environment Program.
