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
