Plastic is an indispensable material for modern society. However, plastic waste is at the center of the current debate due to its presence and persistence in aquatic ecosystems. The literature recognizes that this problem is mainly due to the traditional linear economic model. The circular economy is a model based on the practices of reduction, reuse, recovery, and recycling of materials and energy. Circular economy solutions for plastic could hold the key to its present and future sustainability. Investigating the studies already done about plastic in the context of a circular economy is fundamental to understanding where we are and where we can go.
