    Every year, approximately 14 billion pounds of trash are dumped into the ocean, with merchant ships generating almost 90 percent of marine waste. If you break this down by day, that means about 38,356,164 lbs a day, assuming (incorrectly) that the same amount of waste is dumped every day. But for an average number, that should work!

    Another interesting thing to examine when looking at waste in our marine ecosystems is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. You can find more information about that here.
