PHILIPPINE RIVERS DOMINATED THE GLOBAL TOP 10 LIST OF LARGEST PLASTIC EMITTING RIVERS!🇵🇭💔💔💔 About 80% of the world's ocean plastics enter via rivers. The Philippines alone contribute about 1/3 of the global total - much higher than those coming from the continents of Africa, North America, South America, Europe, and Oceania combined! Most of the world’s largest emitting rivers are in Asia, where about 81% of the ocean plastics are emitted. The Philippines, the top-emitting country, alone contributes around 36.4% of the world's total - much higher than the most populous countries (China - 7% and India - 13%)!
