The damages caused by plastic pollution in oceans soar into the billions of euros globally. From the effects on hundreds of species,  to substantial damage to sea animal life and their habitats, as well as to municipalities and fisheries industries; there are repercussions for livelihoods and human health. Why is a macro approach to solving this problem so difficult? In the triangle between societies, market players and decision makers, Arthur ten Wolde (IMSA Amsterdam) offers insights into the notion of pinpointing ‘responsibility’,  the mechanisms behind industry agency, political will and the public cultures of garbage.
