The world is beginning to tackle the threat of plastic waste, according to the renowned broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.
"I think we're all shifting our behaviour, I really do," Sir David said in an interview with the BBC.
Describing plastic pollution as "vile" and "horrid", he said there was a growing awareness of the damage it can do.
"I think we are changing our habits, and the world is waking up to what we've done to the planet," he said.
