Study shows how much plastic enters the ocean each year

First published study in 40 years estimating the amount of plastic going into our oceans, and expected to go into the ocean. Things are unfortunately not looking good.
Key excerpts - "5% to 40% of [plastic] littered or dumped plastic enters the ocean each year." "About 4 million to 12 million metric tons of plastic washed offshore in 2010 alone."
