Perplexing Plastic Statistics, What We Can Do!

Perplexing Plastic Statistics, What We Can Do!

Look around you, what do you see? 

At work, at school, in your kitchen, your living room, your bathroom. . . . 

Plastic! It is everywhere!

According to EcoWatch (http://www.ecowatch.com/):

  • enough plastic is thrown away to circle the earth four times
  • billions of pounds of plastic can be found in our oceans
  • the average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year
  • it takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade

What can we do?

  • choose to reuse: metal or glass reusable drinking bottles, cloth shopping bags, personal care dispensers (refillable)
  • recycle
  • spread the word

The more we know the better off we (and mother earth) are!

Sincerely,

Mia
