Plastic Is Rarely Recycled
Roughly 5% of plastic in the United States gets recycled properly every year. The other 95% percent? Yep, you guessed it! It ends up in our landfills, rivers, and oceans. Additionally, most plastic isn’t recyclable at all.
Plastic Litter Is Everywhere
We guarantee you can’t drive down the street of your neighborhood without seeing a plastic bottle, utensil, or bag lying around. Littering is one of the major reasons plastic ends up in lawns, ditches, and fields.
Plastic Is Used Every Day
There is no argument that plastic is hard to get rid of. It’s a part of our everyday lives! But, if we can eliminate one portion of it (plastic bottles), then we can help make a difference in plastic pollution, not just on land but in the sea.
