Plastic is among the most common types of pollution on Earth and is rapidly making its way into the oceans. Research published in the journal Science estimated that at least 5.3 million tons of plastic debris entered the world's oceans in 2010.
On Friday, several environmentalists, financial experts and companies that manufacture and use plastic will meet in Dallas to work on tackling plastic pollution and potentially slow that flow.
This is one of two Plasticity Forums this year; the other is in Anaheim, Calif., in May. The annual conference moves around the world each year (Shanghai and London hosted in 2016) and tries to engage experts to find solutions.
