The United Nations Environment Programme has, in honour of the up-and-coming World Environment Day on June 5th, developed a short quiz to test your knowledge on the impacts of plastic waste. Can you get all of the questions correct?

The UNEP Plastic Quiz:

Plastic pollution is one of the biggest environmental issues facing the planet. Humanity produces over 430 million tonnes of plastic every year – two-thirds of which are short-lived products which soon become waste. This has devastating consequences for wildlife, ecosystems, human health and the global economy.

The good news is that momentum is building towards a more sustainable, circular economy for plastics.

Some progress is being made, with a historic resolution passed last year at the United Nations Environment Assembly to end plastic pollution and agree on a legally binding agreement by the end of 2024. But there is much left to do, which will involve every section of society playing its part.

How much do you know about the plastic pollution crisis?

Ahead of this year’s World Environment Day on June 5, which focuses on solutions to plastic pollution, take this quiz to see how much you know about the plastic pollution crisis[.]
