NEXT TIME YOU REACH FOR A SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE, OR AIM TO TOSS AN EMPTY PLASTIC BOTTLE IN THE RECYCLING BIN, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
500 Billion plastic bottles are used around the globe annually, and 91 % of plastic ever produced was never recycled. Most of this plastic will end up in landfills or our oceans.
In fact, by 2050, the ocean is expected to contain more plastic than fish by weight.
No one is perfect and it is hard to go plastic free overnight, but just take it one step at a time and fade plastics out of your daily lifestyle step by step. Even one less straw or one less plastic utensil and or bottle used per day will eventually turn into something greater for the health of our blue water planet. You will adapt a healthier habit and will become an earth and ocean guardian. I have seen this in my own younger siblings- if they can do this, you can too!
