In less than a year, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. As we all contended with the unfamiliarity that came from living in a new normal, the war on plastic took a back seat to the pandemic. The pandemic brought a tidal wave of plastic with it; plastic that filled our homes, streets, rivers and oceans.

But why did this happen?

Sad to see the worlds advances on finally coming to grips with the problem that plastic waste makes, now being set back many years.
