Why should we reduce our Plastic Consumption:

  1. Most plastics are not recyclable such as plastic bags and saran wrap
  2.  The average family only recycles 15 bags per year, the rest end up in landfills as litter.
  3. Plastic bags are used for an average of 12 minutes
  4.  It takes 500 (or more) years for a plastic bag to degrade in landfill. But unfortunately even then the bags don’t break down completely, becoming micro-plastics that release toxins and continue to pollute the environment.
  5. An estimated 270,000 tons of plastic is floating through the world’s oceans
  6. Plastic waste threatens 700 marine species with its presence
  7.  There is growing evidence that plastics play a role in rising rates of species extinctions.
  8. Plastics are not biodegradable, nor are they digestible
  9. Most plastic is made of fossil fuels
  10. Plastic is toxic and can spread harmful chemicals into the food or drinks you consume.
  11. Factories which mass produce plastics spread harmful chemicals in the air, people who live near these factories have increased rate of getting cancer and children getting ADHD
