A new IUCN report, "The Mediterranean : Mare Plasticum", estimates that 33 Mediterranean countries dump 229,000 tonnes of plastic into the sea each year. 

The IUCN estimates that as much as 94 per cent of plastic ends up in the sea as a result of poor waste management. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature estimates that perhaps 3.5 million tonnes of plastic have accumulated in the Mediterranean Sea.
