It would take about 2 million adult, male, African elephants to tip a scale over the 8 million ton mark. That’s about how much plastic Dr. Jenna Jambeck estimates entered the ocean in 2010 alone. Host April Sorrow talks to Dr. Jambeck about the impact this solid waste has on the environment and what we can do to minimize it. Dr. Jenna Jambeck is an Environmental Engineer and Associate Professor in University of Georgia’s College of Engineering.
