Most ocean pollution comes from Asian rivers

Not all nations pollute equally — and some of them are responsible for far more of the world’s contamination than others.
According to a study released Wednesday, most of the plastic currently in the ocean came from Asian rivers.
Of the world’s 40,760 ocean-bound rivers, a mere 20 are responsible for two-thirds of the ocean’s pollution, according to the study by The Ocean Cleanup, a Dutch foundation that develops technology to decontaminate waterways.
Most of those rivers are located in Asia. In the foundation’s study published Wednesday, they found that overwhelming majority of pollution in the ocean came from the Yangtze River in China.
