Globally, 1 million plastic drinking bottles are purchased every minute while up to 5 trillion single-use plastic bags are used annually.

In this fourth episode of What's Now & Yet to Come," show host, Julia Ann Dudley N. reiterates the plastic problem: If historic growth trends continue, global production of primary plastic is forecasted to reach 1,100 million tonnes by 2050, according to the UN Environment Programme. Dudley Najieb then reviews some of the solutions people and businesses are using with plastic waste.

From the 1950s to the 1970s, only a small amount of plastic was produced, and as a result, plastic waste was relatively manageable. However between the 1970s and the 1990s, plastic waste generation more than tripled, reflecting a similar rise in plastic production.
