Illustrated informational piece utilizing data from Our World in Data. My aim with this project is to shed light on the stark imbalance between countries that are the largest producers of plastic, with the United States occupying the top position, and those that bear the brunt of marine pollution.

As widely acknowledged, there exists a significant disparity wherein plastic waste generated by affluent nations often finds its way to distant shores, predominantly in the seas of Southeast Asia. Consequently, despite being major contributors to the global plastic footprint, these countries are spared from the immediate consequences of marine pollution washing up on their own coasts. This discrepancy underscores the urgent need for collective action and international cooperation to address the systemic challenges posed by plastic pollution, ensuring a more equitable and sustainable future for our oceans and marine ecosystems.
