Since the 1950s, the rate of plastic production has grown faster than that of any other material. Plastic packaging, the main cause for the increase, accounted for 52% of discarded plastics in 2015.

As a response to public outcry, companies have committed to increase recycling rates, reduce plastic use and invest in recycling technology.
