    A lot.  It’s impossible to get an exact figure, but you can get an idea of how much plastic is in the ocean from some other figures:

    -About 250 billion pounds of plastic pellets are manufactured each year to be turned into the everyday plastics we throw out.

    -A team of researchers studying the North Pacific Ocean found 6 pounds of plastic for every one pound of algae in the water.

    -Over 1 million sea birds and 100,000 mammals and sea turtles are killed each year from ingesting plastic.
