Year's scariest statistic: 90.5% of plastic not recycled
CBS News

Britain’s Royal Statistical Society has selected an eye-opening statistic on the proportion of plastic that is never recycled as its "statistic of the year." The stat - 90.5 percent - comes from a global analysis of plastics co-authored last year by Dr. Roland Geyer, University of California, Santa Barbara, Dr. Jenna Jambeck, University of Georgia, and our own Dr. Kara Lavender Law, Research Professor of Oceanography at Sea Education Association.
