Plastic is physically choking the planet. If you think that’s an overstatement, check these facts: 1) humans discard 60million plastic bottles every day which land up in landfills and incinerators. 2) A plastic bottle can last up to 450 years in the rivers or oceans. Ergo, 60 x 365 = 21.9 billion x 450 = 98.55 billion plastic bottles will, theoretically, choke Earth and its waters! And, that’s only bottles!
We can still stop the deluge! This infographic discusses easily-done methods and habits to prevent plastic waste being dumped in waterways. All it needs is will.
