    World's plastic waste could bury Manhattan 2 miles deep

    Wednesday, July 19 2017 2:26 PM EDT2017-07-19 18:26:45 GMT

    WASHINGTON - A cradle-to-grave study of global plastics finds industry has made more than 9 billion tons of plastic since 1950. The research shows there's enough left over to bury Manhattan under more than two miles of trash. Plastics don't break down like other man-made materials, so three-quarters of the stuff ends up as waste in landfills, littered on land and floating in oceans, lakes and rivers.
