Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today. Take a look around. Plastic pervades our lives:
- Plastic fibers contaminate 83% of the world’s tap water.
- We eat an average of 70,000 pieces of microplastics every year.
- Scientists estimate there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans by 2050.
Plastic pollution travels and leaches toxins immediately impacting the environment from when it touches land, spreading to water, the air, and eventually the bodies of living organisms.
With 91% of plastic waste never being recycled, we must rely on our choices to save our lives and the lives of our loved ones, our wildlife, and our planet.
